Keith Burgun – “Arcs in Strategy Games”

“Arcs are one of the fundamental pillars of form, or structure in strategy games, and so they should be considered carefully in any design.”

Keith Burgun explores the topic of “strategy vs. tactics” from a new perspective. The concept of “strategic arcs” serves as a tool to provide strategy games with a more coherent structure. A careful distribution of those arcs can not just help in determining the optimal length of a game, but also in creating “more unique and special” games overall.
