PlayThinker - Brainstorming for game developers
A brainstorming tool for game developers.
PlayThinker is a card game that challenges you to blend player-game interactions into a compelling game.
Avoid the same old.
What makes a game interesting is how the player interacts with a game's systems, and how those systems push back.
Using these as the building blocks of a new game makes it easier to ignore the tropes of a genre or setting, freeing you up to make something new.
From one player to a whole class.
Play by yourself, with a friend, or in a group of any size. PlayThinker is great for use in the classroom too.
