Hello all, first time sharing a blog post in this forum, looking forward to seeing how it goes.

This article is the first installment of our series on our Six Pillars of Game Design: Mechanical Patency. "A mechanically patent game is one where its core experience is unobstructed by its rules, systems, or balance."

Thanks for reading!
