Success Stories Dustin Kohnen

“This workshop has significantly helped me in my design career.

When discussing game design and any related material, I can simply recognize that I am way more structured than most other designers. I can see what the trades are in design decisions and it’s because of the lenses.

One of the biggest values in the community is connecting with experienced designers and exploring different ideas because they can help you understand which thought processes to follow when aiming to design better and more exciting games.”
