Sims Creator Will Wright Teaches Game Design Via MasterClass

Famed game developer Will Wright is teaching a massive class on games - via MasterClass. In his class, Wright covers a slew of game design topics, like generating new concepts, creating game mechanics, player psychology, and mental modeling. Best known for his work creating SimCity and The Sims, Wright has had a celebrated career in game development. 

Enrollment for the class is $90 for lifetime access or $180 per year for the All-Access Pass, which grants unlimited access to all new and existing classes.

“I think that game design can represent a lot of learning that you can bring back into other design fields,” said Wright. “I wanted to teach a MasterClass as a way of relaying some of the things I learned over the years and inspiring the next generation of designers. We’re on the cusp of some really interesting technology but good game design is essentially about understanding the player."

'Raimi Suit' Added To Spider-Man As A Free Holiday Gift From Insomniac

Insomniac Games just delivered a great holiday gift for Spider-Man fans. The suit worn by Tobey Maguire in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man film trilogy is available today as a free download in Spider-Man. Fans were dismayed that this popular suit wasn't included in the core game, and again voiced frustration over it not appearing in any of The City That Never Sleeps downloadable content.

We don't know if there were any licensing hurdles that prevented it from being released earlier, or if Insomniac just wanted to give it away free as a holiday gift, but we can all be thankful that it's finally here and we no longer need to see gifs of Tobey Maguire crying on Twitter.

Wait... Hold that thought. Why isn't the black Raimi suit in the game yet? INSOMNIAC!

Discarded Designs From Pokémon's First Generation Unearthed

During a recent broadcast on Japanese network NHK TV, the network aired some images they received from Pokémon developer Game Freak made during the development of the first Pokémon games, the generation that created fan favorites like Charizard, Pikachu, and more. These images show in-progress Pokémon designs that later became the monsters people know and love today. Iteration was clearly key, however, as some of these designs look a lot better now.

A Japanese Twitter user screencapped the images, but it was broadcast originally on NHK.
