I love the guy — Casey. He has been so influential in the field of Game Development. I have seen the names Bink and RAD so many times as a kid playing games; when I came to know of him as one of the leads behind these technologies; I had a fanboy moment.

Casey and Jonathan Blow are great friends! As an aside, I think you would enjoy this 👇 :D — Game Developer's Conference 2007 Programmer's Challenge!

Written by Jeff Roberts and Casey Muratori, who also hosted the event, questions on everything from Dijkstra's algorithm to strangely named Gundam games garnered huge laughs from competitors Josh Adams, Brian Jacobson, Chris Hecker, Eric Malafeew, Jonathan Blow, and Chris Butcher, as well as the audience.

I can think of three, out of the top of my head... along with the quotes that have struck a chord!

The true way transcends the minutia of Skill. There is no "Technology". There is no "Design". There is only a vision of how mankind should be, and the relentless resolve to make it so. The rest is details.

This is the Way that I teach.

Jonathan Blow

Things that are personal have flaws, they have vulnerabilities. If you don’t see a vulnerability in somebody then you probably are not relating to them on a very personal level.

It’s the same with game design. Making [Braid] was about, let me take my deepest flaws and vulnerabilities, let me put them in the game and see what happens.
