In 2012 I self-published Michtim: Fluffy Adventures on DriveThruRPG. While being a standalone game product that brings joy to players (and in some cases even to their families!), it was also the practical part of my master thesis in Media & Interaction Design. Recently (in October 2015), the game was nominated for a World Experience Award at WUC15 and made the second place.

So far, only a selected few have had a chance to take a look at the thesis; but I feel that it has some valuable insights to offer to those that are interested in the design of game products like Michtim. I won't claim that I have found universal truths; but this book offers some hints at why I created this game and what the fundamental design decisions were.

Michtim is an inclusive game, so the t...

Cute Heroes with Special Powers

Michtims are easily mistaken for hamsters at first glance, yet they have access to magic, technology and nature's allies. They are in constant struggle with human's plans to take down their sacred Immergrummel woods. Nevertheless, they also know how to have a good time, because bakery festivals are an important part of their culture.

Easy to Learn / Fun to Tinker with

The core rules are taught in steps. The game is playable with just the basic rules (that are also reproduced on the character sheet for your convenience). If the Michtims grow experienced enough, the game master will introduce Callings and Gear to offer more complexity. Players are able to create new material, based on the existing framework or change the fiction aspec...

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
