7: Redefining Videogames with Yifat Shaik
Besides having an awesome name, Yifat Shaik works as a professor of Game Design at York University in Toronto and has made a variety of interactive experiences which redefine what people traditionally think of as games. She based the silly Real Army Simulator off her mandatory service in the Israeli army as a satire game, made a game in Excel called The Worksheet Saga, and more. We also discuss the games industry age barrier, issues with crunch and the debate over the cost of games, and what design trends the industry is heading towards.
