design language: instructional literalism

“…to interpret statements in their literal sense”

Simple, direct and clear instructions that can be easily understood by the player.
The player will often have a number of things on their mind, and everything is open to misunderstanding and miscommunication. Write and review instructions in a very literal manner, and assume they will be followed by an average 6 year old.
