According to Danesi (2002), part of the appeal of the puzzle arises from the disruption of this order, or more precisely, from the knowledge that order may be restored. Thus, the self-contained ordered world created within what Huizinga terms the ‘magic circle’ of the gameworld is disturbed (see also Jensen and Scott 1980 on the appropriateness of the physical setting or ‘play landscape’). However, the reinstating of the equilibrium state may be seen to represent part of the challenge that Rouse (2001) and Crawford (1984) identify as central motivations for play.

Key among these changes has been the emergence of increasingly formalized, managed development processes and the coming of age of a videogames ‘industry’ in stark contrast to the often ad hoc processes of 1970s’ and 1980s’ videogame production. The diversity and complexity of the assets constituting the contemporary videogame have seen the inevitable emergence of specialist teams and the virtual death of the lone designer, responsible for all aspects of a game. For many commentators, these large development teams with specialized, often ring-fenced areas of responsibility in combination with the increasing dominance of frequently risk-averse financiers and publishers required to fund and support large-scale projects, has led to a situation in which the contemporary marketplace is largely bereft of the creativity and invention associated with the heyday of development (see Kent 2001) and flooded with derivative products and sequels designed to safely generate revenue.

For example, many games place the player in an initial situation from which they have to escape by traversing a landscape, environment, or in the case of Luigi’s Mansion, a haunted house. However, the games do not tell the player how to conquer the game space, nor do they initially present any more than the barest of parameters for play. It is the job of the player to deduce (or even impose) rules through exploration, invention and imagination – reaching out into the world to test, evaluate and execute different approaches.
