People That Don’t Like Video Games Helping To Make Videogames

I'm kind of on the fence about this approach to making video games. Part of me thinks it is a good idea. The other part of me thinks that you'll just end up with a video game tailored towards people that don't like video games.

Montreal-based programmer Brie Code has set up a new studio called Tru Luv Media that aims to make videogames with the help of people who don’t like videogames. The reason being that she wants her friends and people like them to care about games. These are people for who videogames do not resonate at all, mostly because they draw from the same cultural references time and again, use the same design principles, and are primarily made for people who already play videogamesآ—there’s nothing there for anyone else.
