The continuing adventures of semi-structured entrepreneurial lifestyle
Being self-employed is awesome except that it requires continuous dedication and focus and good time management skills. I have decided to dedicate the first 3-4 months of 2013 to my very own game design school with myself as the sole student, teacher and member. Well there might be some other game designers/playtesters but they won’t be graded. In the spirit of games I hit on the idea this evening of offering points for various assignments and the completion thereof. Henceforth I will be awearding myself 1 point for every chapter read/blog post posted/game reviewed/ game brainstorm write up, 2 points for every book review, prototype completed, outside playtest done etc. Multiple points can be scored by combining activities and creatively solving problems. Once I have enough points they can be spent with rewards such as buying new games, going dancing or playing magic online. These are all mental structures but that is what games are after all right. Okay back to game land and the quest for magical points.
