GameDev and Business musings - framework I love, game funds
Hey Friends, Greetings from Bangalore 💗
🤓 Framework I learned: invert thinking from Charlie Munger: mental models.
Keep it simple, instead of listing down things that can make your game successful, list down things that can make your game fail and avoid these scenarios. Invert thinking is not about reverse engg, it’s about sticking to the basics by avoiding these fail scenarios eventually you will focus on things that will make your game successful. This framework will help you derive 101 for anything you’re about to explore.
