“Torschlusspanik: Closing Doors in Game Design”
Dean Razavi | Razbury Games
Long before there was FOMO, the Germans coined the phrase “Torschlusspanik” to refer to the existential dread of knowing that, as time passes, you will miss more opportunities in life. The feeling is demonstrated any time a player refuses to leave a dungeon until exploring its secrets, when assigning irrevocable stat points, or being forced to make an important plot decision. We’ll talk about how to effectively create that sensation in games, when to capitalize on it, when to avoid it, and how it can be an effective tool in your game design toolkit.
