Core pillars

Use the web platform
The game should feel like it belongs in the browser, rather than happening to be rendered inside it.
Only multiplayer
The more players I manage to get into a shared world, the happier I’ll be.
Players impact the world
Player actions should keep the game world in continous flux, and its state should both affect and motivate gameplay.
Expressive traversal mechanics
Moving slow, moving fast, hiding, crashing, tumbling…. Navigating the game world should be a series of challenges and decisions.
Hidden information and input randomness
Fewer dice rolls. More stealth, line of sight, guesstimation, vague maps, and changing conditions.
