So, you have a great idea for a game...


     Blog #2

So, you have a great idea for a game and you think it's something you can do. But there's a problem... Well, actually, many problems: you have no idea how to program things or how to model or to draw as a matter of fact. But you are too damn confident that your idea is good (maybe you've got some designer skills, who knows) and you want to make something out of it. Where do you start? Good question. I will try to give you some answers about game creating from my own personal experience.

designing games

Designing games, especially with a small team, can be really, really, stressful, unless you know what you're doing. Each member or your team must know its role very well, should know what to do next and who to ask for advice whenever required. Should you fail to provide a comprehensive and detailed Design Document for them, which should answer at least the majority of questions that can and will be raised, your team members might not see you as a professional and walk away from the game project.

How do you create a Design Document? Here you can find a few examples. Please note that each document is unique and must meet the requirements of its game. Should you want to know more about the game making process, Google is your friend. ;)

Once you figure out the design, it's time to think about bringing more people into the team (which right now consists of one person: you). On GameDev.net you can find programmers, concept artists, 3D modelers, musicians and other people which can help you in the game making venture. Subscribe to the forums and pay attention to new posts or simply browse older ones to search for whatever you might need to achive your goals.

Enjoy a quality free war game just from the comfort of your Internet browser. Asgard Heroes is Evolution Vault's sci-fi epic MMORPG set in the high tech world of Altaria, home of the Asgardians. This game like Travian allows players to embark on the most savage, exotic and techie adventure yet, as they struggle to rebuild and adapt. Try it!

GameDev.net is a good place to find programmers or musicians, but for good concept and 3d artists, you will have to go to: DeviantArt. Make an account and start sending notes to people you think would be a valuable addition to your team in order to make a videogame.

If you have money, problem solved! Pay the artist; they do what you request them to do, then your programmer(s) will introduce the content in the game. If you don't have money, then you will have to convince artists to join your team, and trust me when I say, you will have to be really good at it! I am in a continuous search for new, dedicated, artists, and get a lot of rejections, though we have a published title, though we are relatively know company. Think how hard this would be for you... But don't give up, there's still hope and only people who are very stubborn and trully dedicated to designing games can succeed.

Champions go to extraordinary lengths to discover the work in which their deepest passions lie, and then turn their flame of desire into a blow torch of healthy obsession. If you want to succeed in designing games, you have to make a healthy obsession out of your project! Do not complain that other people don't show the same involvement into the game making, do not set your progression after theirs. You have a dream, but that dream must turn into something real, otherwise it remains what it is, just a dream...

Average people don't invest the time necessary to discover where their passions lie. You think you discovered yours? Stick with it to the very end! Eric Worre once said: "I'm going to the top of the mountain. You're either going to see me waving from the top or dead on the side. But you know what? I'm not coming down." Are you really committed to your game making project? Are you?
