Hi everyobdy. I guess that it's appropiate that I introduce myself. I'm Diego, an industrial designer from Argentina.
I've started getting interested in boardgames for a while as another venue to explore design ideas and I'm finding it fascinating as it has lots of similarities to product design while having a different focus.
It's hard -and expensive- to get boardgames here so I haven't played as many as I'd like (and I know that playing games is the most important thing for aspiring designers to do) but that's the reality I have to deal with.
I'm now slowly advancing with a game design in my free time. I've gotten to the point where I can safely say that the core mechanics are locked down and now I gotta test, balance and experiment with secondary mechanics. It's nothing revolutionary but I'm quite satisfied with it for a first proyect. I guess I'll make a post about it down the line as right now all the assets are in spanish.
I've been reading the forum a bit and there's lots of interesting disscusions here, I hope I can contribute.
