Shaun Inman talks about his upcoming game, Mimeo and the Kleptopus King:
At its core, play, and by extension video games, is learning. Call it discovery or mastery but a good game introduces new ideas (teaches), leverages existing ones (reviews) and layers them to create unique challenges (tests).
The concept and images look great, but it goes beyond that:
In addition to creating the scenario, programming and designing all the graphics I’m also composing and producing all the music.
If you don’t think coding is art, you at least need to accept that game-development is.
