I have a lot of time for the "Extra Credits"
Its a video series exploring game development and design, it looks and sounds cartoony but dont be fooled by its looks, I have found the series extremely meaningful and relevant, even to High Fidelity even though its not technically a game and doesnt have the usual challenge/decision/reward pathways generally found in games, it does fall into the exact same category due to its need to involve the player, and allow the player to be involved easily and readily and offer enough rewards to entice the user to return.
Also the video moves fast, and combined with goofy graphics makes it a very enjoyable watch, and carries tons of meaningful info brought by people who have obviously studied and experienced game development. It is crammed full of good oil and worth watching a couple of times.
This Video Nails Hifi’s problem (please don’t pretend there is no problem with user uptake and retention)
Massive complexity with little or zero rewards equals pointless hard work and users see no point in even stepping into the world if the entry level complexity is beyond them and the docs do little to support the users understanding of the platform.
