Why am I doing this?
"Artists – and a game designer, is an artist, working in the medium of games – artists begin with imitation. If you want to be a comic book illustrator, you begin by trying to draw Spiderman, or Superman, or like the Hernandez brothers. If want to be a rock musician, you begin by copying the stylings of guitarists you admire. If you’re a writer, you begin by writing fan fi c, or trying to imitate the style of writers you adore. And if you’re a game designer, you begin by trying to design a game like one you enjoy." Greg Costikyan, I Have No Words & I Must Design
I just read those few words and thought, that this is really what I aim to do here. By starting on classical games I really enjoy and enjoyed playing, I want to dive deeper into developing and designing games.
