Geoff Engelstein (@gengelstein) on how to raise game-designer children:

“Play lots of games. We started playing games with them at an early age, taking them to cons, and just introducing them to that world. … It’s been nice to show the kids that you can have a project, sketch it on a piece of paper, and turn it into a product on store shelves that people can buy. It’s a great lesson to show them that this sort of thing is possible in your life, whether you want to design a game, write a book, etc. You don’t have to wait for something to fall in your lap, you can just go ahead and do it.”
