[WEBINAR] Application Acceleration: Faster Performance for End Users

Ant Farming

Definition - What does Ant Farming mean?

Ant farming refers to a flawed game design that focuses so much on the overall design of the game that the user’s playing experience suffers. Ant farming results in games that are beautiful to watch, with lush designs and interesting levels, but are not as fun to play.

Techopedia explains Ant Farming

Good game design focuses on the user’s experience, but there is a lot of room within that focus to make a game that is beautiful to look at. The temptation that comes with ant farming is to make a work of art that ends up being unplayable - or simply less enjoyable than it could have been – because the user’s experience takes a back seat. The parallel, of course, is a child’s ant farm. It is interesting to look at, but it wouldn't be any fun to live inside.
