This is going to be an easy design challenge: go learn something new. It doesn’t even have to be about game development.
Learning new things is the best way to get exposed to different ideas. What I learned today is after the break.
I spent some time learning about the Wizard of Oz books. My better half decided to read the book Wicked, which is a different take on the main Wizard of Oz tales. I started reading it as well, and it’s reminded me about the Oz books I read as a kid. I didn’t know exactly how many books there were, but a bit of researched told me and I remembered more about the books I had read. It’s interesting to see how someone else has taken a story that’s in the public domain and made something new and interesting with it.
If you feel up to it, post what you learned new today. It might inspire someone else. :)
