I’m sitting here on the Greek island of Kalymnos writing the first post of this blog. Today is my birthday and what a perfect gift you already gave me by reading this. My name is John Vladman and together with Anthony Nil, we are LEGiTAMiNE Games. We are a Game Design team with headquarters in Athens, Greece. Welcome to our blog and thank you for taking the time to dig into my thoughts.
Our name represents our desire to create authentic, legit games that aim to offer an engaging and rich storytelling experience. LEGiTAMiNE Games was born in Global Game Jam 2015, where Anthony and I teamed up for the first time to create a game in the 48 hour limit of the jam. We have been friends for as long as I can remember and together we have ventured into the landscapes of imagination by playing both digital and tabletop games for years. It was our childhood dream to create games of our own and, through this medium, express our thoughts, feelings, fears, hopes and vision.
The aim of this blog will be to present each developmental stage of our board game LIESERL, from brainstorming sessions and early concepts to production and publishing. As we are living in interesting times, we will also be discussing topics from the fields of gaming, technology, education, philosophy, science and other things that attract our curiosity.
We are here to learn and, by sharing this experience, we hope to enlighten and entertain 🙂
