Jessica Mulligan, a person I admire greatly, said that she stopped writing regular columns when it felt like she was just repeating the same thing over and over again. (With the unwritten lament, and still nobody is listening!) That’s kind of how I feel about one of my pet topics: innovation. I keep posting, but little seems to come from it.
Not that it’s necessarily going to stop me, of course. Allow me to ruminate a bit more on originality and how it applies to game design.
