|Overview:||Game mechanics are among the hardest parts of a game to design, because they are difficult to visualize and inconvenient to simulate quickly. In this lecture, Ernest Adams and Joris Dormans introduce a new visual framework and tool called Machinations, which allows designers with no programming experience to diagram mechanics in a tool like Visio, and simulate them in real-time. In addition, the session will present a library of design patterns that participants can use. Machinations is available for free, this is not a product demo.|
