The Design Process

All the tasks involved in creating a game can be organized within the steps of the seven-step program I'm about to lay out for you. You'll soon see why: These top-level, quantifiable steps will be relevant to any sort of game. We'll illustrate the steps with the recognizable example of a game of 8-ball (pool). And now, here is the process.

1.
Find an idea.

2.
Identify your audience, and modify your idea to fit it.

3.
Decide on the look and feel of your game.

4.
Identify what you do not know how to accomplish, and find the resources to help you accomplish it.

5.
Cut back on game features where necessary.

6.
Build the game.

7.
Test your game for bugs and usability (quality assurance).
