My question for designers who make games primarily (or solely) for digital consumption: When thinking about layout, do you support players being able to print your material if they want to or not?
In my mind, not being constrained by printable formats opens the door for layouts that are more appropriate for desktop aspect ratios, which is obviously a positive but if you do this then it’s much more difficult for people to play your game physically.
Of course, landscape letter size is a decent viewing experience on desktop, but laying out a game in 16 x 9 or other weird aspects is enticing for me as a design nerd.
I have no idea what percentage people would expect their games to be played in physical vs digital these days, if anybodies got numbers on that question i’d also love to hear it. A certain number of people playing in person also have the option to use screen devices rather than printing stuff out…
Curious of any perspective on this, either from designers or players who have an opinion on it.
