The Good, the Bad, and the War of the Ring: should a familiar story be retold through play?
Fundamentally, War of the Ring excellently captures the struggle of good against evil, but should we be playing this version of the story?
Welcome to Analogue.
Here I'll share my thoughts and opinions on a range of topics from the world of video and tabletop gaming! The writing is centered around an observation of the design and use of gameplay mechanics (for the most part).
Analogue comes from the idea of writing about gameplay mechanics. They're the fundamental parts of the game we play. They are the tools we use to tell stories in the games we make. They are the essence of game design and they've been around for as long as games have (which is a very long time!). So, at the risk of being a little old-school, Analogue felt like a fitting name.
