Like the subgenres of music and film, the gaming world features small yet dedicated communities around certain mechanics, histories and ideals. But what’s it like to navigate these waters as a designer?

Satchell Drakes and I discuss staunch communities both inside and outside gaming and talk to Leighton Gray, the co-creator and co-writer of the 2017 hit Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator, and Kevin Cole, the creator of the roguelike adventure Haque. Topics include:

  • Being able to find a niche that speaks to your interests in gaming;
  • Recognizing the traditions of certain genres while trying to innovate them for a new audience;
  • The challenges of developing games within these communities.
