Game Duplicators and Derivative Game Design

I’m not quite sure what to make of the rant over on ihobo today… At first glance I seem to be knocking those game designers whose work is essentially focused on copying other people’s designs – the game duplicators of the title. But as I get going, the criticism seems instead to fall at the feet of game designers who strive for creativity at all costs, and ultimately on the industry as a whole for its failure to offer thanks when it is due.

Check out my musings about unoriginal game design in Game Duplicators and Derivative Game Design over on today.
