Gamasutra - The Cabal: Valve’s Design Process For Creating Half-Life

Tue, 02/11/2014 - 14:19 -- rprice

"experiential density" — the amount of "things" that happen to and are done by the player per unit of time and area of a map. Our goal was that, once active, the player never had to wait too long before the next stimulus, be it monster, special effect, plot point, action sequence, and so on. player acknowledgment. This means that the game world must acknowledge players every time they perform an action.

Designers and developers have been pushing the boundaries of how MapBox is used in websites and applications. Over the past few weeks I had a chance to pull together some of the freshest designs that use maps in innovative and surprising ways. Together they show a growing trend of using maps as a fully integrated and critical design element, not just as embedded media.
