Hi i'm Alex. I am interested in what makes a game great and why people play them. I love learning about: mechanics, dynamics, incentive, motivation, engagement, goals, & what kind of experience you want the player to feel.
I am developing a tower defense game that produces a creative outcome: making music. I am investigating weather music can be used as a learning tool to form good strategies. If the player makes good music they will find that their strategy has improved, if their strategy is bad their music will sound bad. I like investigating how the mind can identify patterns within a system and use it to accomplish a goal.
Sharing & gaining knowledge of how games are being created for different social applications and what problems they can solve. My favorite example of this is a game called 'Elude' http://vimeo.com/47828131#
