“Torschlusspanik: Closing
Doors in Game Design”
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.
