Game Designing

Well, some of you might think that game designing is a game, it’s fun . Nope it’s not at all a game. Game designing is a serious business.

How many games do really make it a hit? Hardly 10% of the game developed really make it to be noticed. So what really goes wrong with the games which don’t make it to the slot?

Now we will discuss some fundamentals of the art and science of Game Designing.

There are two way’s –

  1. What the game does?
  2. What you want the player to do?
    1. In the former one , the question arises , what does the game do?

      Here the storyline plays the vital role. The storyline should be appealing to all. The addiction level of the story should be 10/10.

      Now how to make the story a hit!

      There are two things which will decide this. First is the character and second is the level design. The character of the game should be able to communicate to the audience. The target audience should be able to relate the character to themselves.

      Like Duke Nukem or Mario or Pikachu. They are hit with the audience.They have achieved what they were meant for.

      In next we will discuss about the level design and more..

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
