I love that you have asked about my thoughts on this, but I’ll have to say that I’m not sure I would even consider it. I know for a fact that for most people, their mind is always working on a task, and it’s not uncommon that they’re thinking about something else at the exact same time.
If you don’t mind me saying though, Im not sure that you’d be able to achieve the goal of getting so many different things to happen at the same time. Im not sure if that would ever be possible, but I’ve never heard anyone suggest that it could not be done.
I think it would depend on the goal. Sometimes you want to have multiple things happen at once, and sometimes you just want one thing to happen. With the goal of getting multiple things to happen at the same time, you might have to break the illusion of simultaneity.
Sure, that’s why the game was designed to be a little bit like a movie. It’s not like you can have a whole movie in one game. The game is set on the same island as the movie, with the same story line, with the same characters. That seems to be what Im talking about.
The game, then, seems like a movie with a little bit of a story. All you do is take actions to make things happen. Thats like a movie: you take the action and the story. You have a goal in game, and you set a goal, and you get to do all the things you want to do. The game is more like a movie, because you’re in the middle of a movie.
This makes sense. The game is set at a real island, and youre in a movie. You have to make your way towards the end. The game is more like a movie because youre in the middle of a movie. But you can get to the end of the game by doing all the things you want to do, so youre actually in a movie too.
Like when you go to the mall and you want to buy a new pair of pants. You only need two things to get the pants. First you have to get to the mall. Second you have to get to the mall, because you want to buy the pants. So you go to the mall. You look around. You buy the pants. You go home. Then you go to the mall, and you look around. You buy a new pair of pants. You go home.
This is a game. As in, a movie. But it is a movie, and you can go all the way through, you can go all the way to the end, and you can win the game. You can also win the game by doing all the things you want to do. That’s really all you need.
I am sure you’ve heard of the concept of a game loop. The concept is that when you play a game, you spend just a small fraction of your time doing the things that make you win, and then your game loops and you win. The goal of the game loop is to get you to spend a larger fraction of your time doing what makes you lose. So you can play a long game to win a small one.
Yeah, that’s what we thought. But then we got a call from an old friend. He and a friend of his own are going to be having a game night at his place, and they were wondering if we could play Deathloop for a while. So we got together and they said it looks like it has a lot of replay value.
