TalkCast 290 – Games by Play Date


Tonight’s guest is Glenn Given from Games by Play Date. From their Facebook page:

Games by Play Date is a Manchester, NH centered game design company. Our aim is to produce board games and card games with companion mobile device implementations through rapid prototyping and an open source development model. Our journey from idea to business and from game concept to delivery is, often literally, an open book. Regular board meetings are held and broadcast online. Our design documents are open to the public and the audience is encouraged to communicate their ideas, concerns and criticisms to us. We feel that an dialogue, quick revisions and aggressive playtesting will develop far better games than any length of armchair designing can accomplish. Games by Play Date’s founders are Glenn Given, Meghan McGinley-Crowe and Daniel Brian.
