I’ve really enjoyed this Arte documentary featuring a conversation between two very influential game designers, each of them belonging to different generations and both sharing a bit of an outsider fame as well as a discontent with the current mainstream of the video game industry: Jason Roher and Chris Crawford.

The conversation sheds a lot of enlightening points about the craft and art of game design and is ripe with tidbits and references to explore: Little Computer People, Fa├žade, Crawford’s current endeavour, Storytron, M.U.L.E., and many more.

Highly recommended if you are into narrative, digital storytelling, game design or simply creativity and innovation, and have 50+ minutes to spare:
