Negative


Negative is a Specification of the Outcome Property.

A negative Outcome is when the player inflicts a negative effect on an opposition. An example of this is Ammunition in first-person shooters. Note that a resource can have both negative and positive outcomes. Mana in Kings Bounty, for instance, can both be used to damage enemies and heal friendly units

Determine whether a resource have negative or positive is very game-specific, and is fairly subjective, but labeling the resource with positive or negative gives a general idea of the intention with the resource.
