Welcome to the October newsletter (sign up if you want to read it):
Videogame developers design their worlds with purpose and often sprinkle it with procedurally-generated sugar. That pizza box is placed to tell you someone ate here and didn’t tidy up, or left in a hurry. The child’s playroom is full of handcrafted toys because they were loved and maybe one parent was a woodwork enthusiast.
Dear subscribers, if you feel like chatting about anything at all from the newsletter, please speak your mind in the comments here.
