It is terribly fun to think up original ideas. But one of the neat things about doing a game like Bone is it takes alot of creativity to figure out how to make the game within the restrictions you have. I think that restrictions actually force one to be more creative than otherwise.

And the thing is, we LOVE Bone! So successfully telling the story in a fun way while getting to add our own bits to it is extremely satisfying. If we were dealing with a license we were less passionate about, then I agree it wouldn't be as much fun as coming up with our own content.
