Depth vs Complexity

I was turned onto Extra-Credits by Turn Based Living.  I’ve just started watching some episodes.  I’ve found it a little bit difficult to navigate the content, but one video I thought was worth sharing was this discussion of Depth vs Complexity.

I worry that I’m building more complexity into Lost Worlds than I originally conceived, and I hope that depth that the rules provide is worth that added complexity.  I think I’ll need to take a second-draft look at all of these mechanics and make sure I’m not making this design unnecessarily difficult to play the game with the amount of depth I want to play.
