Adam M. Smith and Michael Mateas: Towards Knowledge-Oriented Creativity Support in Game Design. In: Computational Creativity 2011 ICCC 2011, pp. 129-131.



This article reports on a work-in-progress system de- signed to support game designers in gaining knowledge about the implications of their design ideas on observa- ble gameplay. Utilizing a convenient pattern language, evidence of the instantiation of many gameplay patterns can be gathered and organized, resulting in insight.
