From blank page to game design in 7 steps

Here’s how to go from a blank page to a game design in 7 steps.

They might seem simple, but they are effective.

  1. Pick your theme and genre.
  2. Know your “Audience”: Who are you making your game for?
  3. Define the fun: What fantasy are you delivering? What are the fun experiences a player wants to have with your theme & genre?
  4. Pick your game pieces: Pick the fun game pieces and figure out how they fit together.
  5. Define a player turn: What does the player do on their turn? Pull together the pieces for a fun and compelling play session.
  6. Long term fun: Evolve the game over time to keep it fun.
  7. Write your ideas up and share for feedback.

Have fun!
