Andreas Zecher and Understanding Games

&Games by Andreas Zecher (a.k.a. pixelate), with music by Martin Snuggles that hope to act as a primer for issues surrounding game design, using the medium of games. Expository "cut scenes" are included. I heard about it from BoingBoing, which heard about it from Raph Koster, author of A Theory of Fun. Greg Kostikyan critiqued them. There are three of a planned four episodes available, published on Kongregate, an online hub for independent game developers using Flash.

Understanding Games, episode 1;/a>
Understanding Games, epsiode 2
Understanding Games, episode 3
Understanding Games, episode 4(UPDATE: It's here!)
