He then develops his thoughts on how systems within the game actually motivate players to regularly devote their time to it, and how those very same systems can be extrapolated into real life, so that we can build our own ‘towers’ in a non-virtual environment – a legacy work that actually outlasts ourselves. There are definitely flaws in the virtual system as well, which Chris expounds upon as he contrasts it with real life. Additionally, you’ll find other incredible examples of people’s legacy work in the manifesto.
So in conclusion, Chris Guillebeau reveals the surprisingly HUGE amount of inspirational power behind his
tiny tower metaphor, and if you find yourself needing a little creative boost in the middle of the week, I’ll advise you to check it out!
