add some fear

a great post from http://abutterflydreaming.com/

  • Fear of the unknown (Alfred Hitchcock once said, “There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.”)
  • Fear of the known (create a sense of helplessness)
  • Fear of the unexpected (set up a situation with an expected outcome, and then switch the ending on them)
  • Avoid paranoia (by over doing it)
  • Avoid mechanically inspired fear (using game mechanics alone)

Adding Fear to Your Game.
