JAY LITTLE: Guest of Honor Game Designer
Petrie’s is excited to bring you face-to-face with the folks who bring you your favorite game titles. Before attending GameFest March 11-13, we wanted to give you the time to get to know this year’s special guests. This time we have Jay Little, author of such titles as X-Wing Fighter, Star Wars Edge of the Empire, and his recent title Patient Zero.
What do you do to inspire your creation process?
Are there any exciting projects in the works?
How do you keep the game design process fresh and interesting?
You have a new game coming to Kickstarter this year, Patient Zero. It sounds like amazing fun, can you tell us a little bit about it?
What game theories do you find yourself applying to your everyday life?
Getting a game published can be difficult. How do you advise budding game designers to proceed when they have an idea for a game?
Which aspect of game design do you enjoy the most?
If we were to sit down at the table to play a game right now, what new or old favorite would you choose?
What is your favorite thing about playing games?
You have such an amazing outlook on life and are a joy to play games with. What advice would you give to gamers to help them have the best game play experience?
You have such a diverse gaming portfolio. How is designing for RPG, miniatures and board/card games different? And in what ways are they the same?
