@caraellison pro tip I stole from Darius at gdc — see how long you can go talking about anything other than games. Ask about books, or museum visits, or gardening...just literally anything else. WAY better conversations.
@caraellison I seriously once spent 90 minutes at the base of an escalator talking to some senior game whosit about the multi-year gardening plan he was implementing in his yard and it ruled.
@courtney I think this may be my new boss but yeah maybe a lot of people get into gardening and its such a nice topic
@caraellison gardening is like dwarf fortress for real life. Do you like infrastructure, physics, and being unable to perfectly control individual actors? Try: keeping plants alive and somewhat orderly!
