(re: Ken Williams – after Sierra, Meditation?) Dear Ken,
‘If we did it exactly perfectly, the goal would be to do something that no one has done before. I’m into innovation, not just doing the “same thing over again with a new plot”‘
The point here is indeed to do something no one has done before — but something that has even more meaning and relevance than your previous games. Only then is innovation good, only then technology would assist spiritual development — I’m sure you know what I mean.
Indeed — take a few years off, enjoy yourselves, clear your heads, look within yourselves — and I’m sure you’ll be ready for new, far greater adventures. Roberta could write a book based on your new discoveries, and then you could turn the book into a game — how about that? A good game has a good plot. A game based on a good book would be an outstanding game.
May I suggest practicing meditation as a starter? It has been a life-saver for me, and a real mind and eye opener. By meditation I mean clearing one’s mind and listening to the silence between thoughts. For 1-2 hours a day. Many people confuse various forms of concentration for meditation i.e. some complex visualisation, etc., but believe me, if you take on simple, real meditation as a starter, it would greatly help your creativity and physical condition, too!
