Since its inception in 1889, the New York City-based, international daily newspaper The Wall Street Journal has become the largest newspaper in the United States, getting a circulation of about 2,4 million copies (as of March 2013), as well as being rewarded with 39 Pulitzer Prizes along the way.
"Traditionally, Chabris writes, a game is defined by its rules. If you don’t let pawns turn into queens, you aren’t playing chess, and if you make captures optional, you aren’t playing checkers. The success of Pandemic Legacy [...] shows that this rule itself was made to be broken."
This could be the reason why other ephemeral games are having their share of succes, such as Space Cowboys' T.I.M.E. Stories, and more are to come, like SeaFall, by Pandemic Legacy's co-creator Rob Daviau, the first "legacy" game to hit the market without the help of an already established franchise.
