Game Mechanics: Discovery



Discovery is a mechanic where a player has a choice of discovering things inside of the game, be it other planets like in No Man’s Sky, or just an open world like in World of Warcraft or Darksiders II. This mechanic can also refer to discovering different possibilities and outcomes depending on the player’s choices like in Until Dawn, where the players discover various different endings for the game.



This mechanic can also be used in games like Alchemist or Doodle God because the player is discovering different possibilities by mixing different elements and objects.
