Ever wonder what goes into a game? Ever wonder how a video game goes from the scribble on a napkin (or discussion over a pint) to a mega-blockbuster franchise? Have you ever stared at the Game Master and wondered how he or she came up with the bizarre puzzles and colorful NPCs?

Well, look no further -- GCR is taking a peek under the hood of Game Design from all stages of the design process (in games of all media and genres). We will look at story creation, design, play testing, game reviewing, and even the "home brews" that are created by the players themselves!
