Game diary

22 04 2014

This weekend I playtested Anchorage. It’s a game built from your email history, you play a little boat on a river that draws energy from being near other boats. The river draws a path through time, as you sail along you travel through your history. Friendly boats appear based on conversations you had with certain people, they’ll stay with you for as long as you stayed in touch, then disappear in your wake as you outstrip them. I playtested the game live via skype in front of Gabe, the creator of the game. I thought that it might be a bit intimidating to expose my personal relationships, but it turned out to be fun to tell him who the people on the boats were, how and if they related to each other, and what their friendship meant to me.
