What sets good games apart from bad or even mediocre ones? It's simple: designers who understand the core fantasy.

With the Senate turned against him, Tiberius Gracchus feared for his life. And rightly so...

Extra Credits is delayed today! We'll update this post when we know more about its estimated release.

Update: We're still plugging away, but this looks like a long wait, folks. We're currently aiming for Friday!

Update #2: Shared this explanation on Twitter, and wanted you folks to hear it as well! So... why was this late? Ironically, because we are trying to sort out our schedule! We used to have a buffer between production and release that covered emergencies, but events of the past year wore it away and we need to re-establish it. We brought in a guest artist to give our regulars a chance to restore the buffer, but we couldn't overcome the delay for this week. On the bright side the episode has finally moved into the last stages of production, so we expect to have it ready today after all!

Update #3: And we're live! Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPzuOSv95fc

Because Games Matter
Introduction

Whether you're looking for a game industry career or simply curious about the way game developers think, Extra Credits makes video game design approachable by exploring concepts like gamification, perfect imbalance, the skinner box, the uncanny valley, and more. Sometimes we also like to recommend a few games you might not have tried!

Join us on Extra Credits every Wednesday as we take a deeper look at games: how they are made, what they mean, and how we can make them better.
