I found the thoughts about discovering simplicity were really interesting. From trying to distil or force(?) fewer mechanics, to getting the realization to maybe thinking bigger might be the answer, in the lights of that Momir Vic card.
I happened upon this nice tidbit yesterday, just before listening to this episode:
Simplicity is a major concern in information design. The aim is clarity. Simplification of messages may imply quantitative reduction but is not restricted to that. Sometimes more information means more clarity.
