The Story Universe of Magic: The Gathering Is Expanding | WIRED

And as the story grows, it feeds back into the game. When one of those Planeswalkers, Gideon Jura, died in that new novel, Wizards of the Coast released a set of eight new cards commemorating his life and powers. The company called it a “Signature Spellbook”—classic Gideon-related cards with new art. You see how this works, right? The game can generate and absorb story. “A game mechanism is a kind of cosmology, whether you want to recognize it,” Kelman says. “We want to create a cosmology that honors the game mechanisms without literalizing them.”

Steam is er nu ook voor de Mac en om dat te vieren, en om iedereen klaar te krijgen voor Portal 2 kan je nu gratis en voor niets Portal krijgen via de client.

Of, zoals ze het zelf omschrijven:

Hurry up, want het is slechts gratis tot 24 mei.
