other mouthful, he waited for Lin Mao to fully absorb the three scenarios he had just pitched.

What did designers in this world lack the most?

Open minds!

Chen Mo wasnt born with the openness, but had acquired it through his experiences in another world, during the birth of video games and their continued growth. From large titles, to browser games, to mobile games and indie games, he had witnessed all of it blossom.

Many video game designers were digging their brains, trying to get other gamers to notice their games and hand over the money in their pockets without resistance.

As for video games, creativity would always take the cake. Without a doubt, the top percent must have open minds. It was impossible for a videogame designer who lacked creativity to invent an immersive game.

Of course, creativity isnt all that tangible. Many ignoramuses referred to themselves as full of creativity and the ability to save the industry. However, their creativity was just hypotheticals. Before being realized, nobody could judge if their ideas would be able to succeed.

The three hypotheticals that Chen Mo put out might seem like it came from genius full of inspiration, but in his previous life, these were rules that video game designers knew deep down. They had been tested by the industry countless times, with many success stories.

Chen Mo knew that Lin Mao was an honest person and was the one he was closest to among his buddies, so he chose to nudge him in the right direction.

However, Chen Mo wasnt going to reveal any specifics. Up till now the end product was entirely dependent on how well Lin Mao understood that.

Lin Mao gave it a long and hard thought and said, “Right, I understand it, more or less. I think what you said made sense. Outside of my intended audience, it does lack something that will attract the attention of the other users.

Chen Mo nodded, “Yep!”

Lin Mao said, “I understand now, Chen Mo. Your three suggestions have widened my views. I think I have more ideas now. Thanks!”

Chen Mo waved his hand. “Dont mention it, it was nothing. All I did was point you in a direction. How you get there depends on you.”

Lin Mao nodded, “Yep, I now know which direction Im heading down. I thought the game was almost done, now it seems like completion is quite a ways away. Ill rethink the game when I get back.”

Lin Mao relaxed his bunched eyebrows. He always felt that his game was lacking, but he didnt know what… and now he knew. What he lacked was a focal point, one that a gamer could see at first glance.

With a focal point, his game would now be able to differentiate itself from countless other games!

Zhao Zihao was shocked, and asked, “Chen Mo, youre pretty good! I didnt think you had so many ideas. Did you uncover your full potential recently?”

Chen Mo said seriously, “Not uncovered potential, but I was enlightened. The video game gods guided me in my dreams the night before the video game competition and sent me a video game designing handbook.”

Zhao Zihao laughed, “Yeah, right!”

——

The three of them chatted as they ate, up until 10pm, ordering another four bottles of beer along the way. They were chatting happily, in the end all three of them getting tipsy.

Chen Mo wasnt much of a drinker himself, as drinking often isnt good for the brain, as it affects memory and thinking. Therefore a drinking habit wasnt desirable in a video game designer.

Zhao Zihao called a staffer from his company to drive him. Lin Mao, on the other hand, was focused on how to restructure and change the game he was currently working on.

After finding a designated driver, Chen Mo was at ease, sending them off after a few words of caution.

After returning to the experience store and cleaning up after himself, he went to sleep after receiving messages from Zhao Zihao and Lin Mao confirming their safety.

Chen Mo still needed to think about his next game. It was best that he got some sleep tonight to ensure a good mental status tomorrow…
