In this talk, co-collaborator Daria Radu and I talk about the experience of designing a card game for Saltsea Chronicles, and explain how minigame design can be used to enrich the game’s story and worldbuilding; how research into a specific genre can be used to scaffold the design process, and how genre fluency can provide designers with a palette to work with when tailoring their own minigames.
