I fell in love with an epic and frankly underrated Twitter thread from game dev Ben Porter this week. “If you were an NPC, what items would you drop when killed?” he asked.
If you were an NPC what items would you drop when killed?

I’ma go first. A scribbly spreadsheet with incomprehensible budget numbers and also something that looks like resource caps from a dead sandbox. Like six different flavors of lip gloss. An empty tea mug. My R2-D2 phone case (better cut off my fingers and take ’em with you or you may as well just vendor my phone). A wallet with actual coins in it just in case my kids start hollering over one of those wishing well donation machines. And a USB stick with approximately 1TB of video game mods. Zero weapons and armor, but definitely some stylish pajama pants.
What will you drop? More importantly, are you worth taking down?
