Pouring Ideas into Games, Become a Good Game Developer

Building a game, requires a good idea, without a good idea a game will feel mediocre, does not give a sense of “DANG!” To the game, for that for beginners who want to build a good game, need to pour the idea. If there is an idea about what game to do before the idea disappears, evaporate without remainder.

When a game idea appears, this is what must be done, Write it down !!! 

High Concept

Write down the high concept of the game, in the form of two or three sentences explaining the game, as an example for a high concept for driving a car with VR technology:

The game must give the impression of immersive, using the virtual reality feature, the player must feel in the game, interact with objects or other players and do something in the game.

Role Player

Write what is the player role in the game you want to make, what player in your game do you want to be? Being a driver, or a female driver, police, thief, food delivery or whatever, giving the design of a role player, an avatar for the player in your game will make the game even more interesting.

Game Play

Write down how game play in your game, starting with primary game play, including camera models, how to interact and common challenges in your game, can be continued with more specific game play, at least the general ones, how to build a good game if the game play is general nothing.


Determine your game genre, if you think your game genre is mixed, think that, how different features in each genre can mix and work together, if this is a new feature explain why the feature is not in an existing game.

Target Player

Write and describe the target audience in your game, this will greatly affect the concept of your game.

Target Device

Determine the device used to play your game, whether using the console, mobile device, including whether to use a special device such as a camera, or dance mat.

The license that will be exploited

Write down the license that will be exploited if there is one.

Competition Mode

Write down the competition in your game, if any. Whether the competition is single, dual, or multiplayer, competitive or coorperative or a mixture of both.

General description of your game

Write down how the story of your game, from the beginning and end, is there a twist in your game.

A brief description of your game world

Write a brief explanation of the description of the game world that you will make, whether the world is cartoon, realistic, fantasy and so on

At least

Write it all down before your idea disappears, evaporating without a trace. Write this down, then you can develop this idea for the better, it doesn’t matter if there are a lot of changes, it’s a journey to make you a good game developer, sometimes an idea won’t appear immediately, it will appear when you process, leave it all, not there is an instant process that produces something good.
