Gaming Gripes – When Executive Decisions Override Creative Directions

As part of my ongoing Adventure Rules Remastered effort, I am adding posts from other blogs which are part of my community events or in which I provided text or content. In this case, I had a great interview with Triform Trinity where we spoke about a serious gripe I have about the gaming industry. Go check it out!


A thing that often happens within the video game industry, is when games suddenly changes from their original idea. Sure, it’s not like talking about stage one from when the idea gets made and the difference in the released game at the last stage.

Unfortunately, I took flipping ages to do the one with NekoJonez, so this is a little bit… post-end-of-event. Nevertheless, we’re here now, so let’s dive in!

As usual, this takes the form of an interview about all sorts of things, followed by me writing a track for my guest and then coming back to quickly discuss what I was able to come up with.
