Tim Schafer on Making Video Games

Great interview with game developer Tim Schafer at Polygon:

“I really tried to capture what I liked about adventure games,” he says. “They engage your brain in a different way. They move at a different pace than most games. You don’t have to worry about being shot. They’re slower. But they’re more thoughtful. You really have to think through what you know about the world in order to solve the puzzles. They should take you to another world that you miss when you’re not playing the game.”
