    How to read a Machinations diagram

    Machinations is a language. When creating a diagram you are “writing”, like you would a GDD. Using the Nodes and Connections as verbs and nouns in sentences.

    This is how to read this:

    You decide to leave home. You left. You’re on the road. It takes you 5 seconds to get there. After 5 seconds, you reach your destination. Hit the Play button and see how it works.

    You and your friend decide to leave home. You left (2 Resources/tokens leave the Source). You’re on the road. It takes you 5 seconds to get there. after 5 seconds, you both reach your destination.

    The player shoots 1 bullet per second from an ammo clip. When the ammo clip is 0, the player reloads with a clip of 25 bullets.
