General game development discussions, really the mixed bag covering a wide range of topics from game design, to feature development, to specific concepts.


Rules for the Development General Discussions Forum

Wanted to cover some additional information for this forum, and what I feel is important to keep in mind. This is both for new posters with ideas, new game makers just starting out, and existing owners for input. I feel that these guidelines and ideas will increase everyone's success in their project.

  • Don't be afraid to post your ideas. Honestly - if you cannot trust your idea to anyone else, then you are just setting yourself up to fail before you begin when you actually start to develop your game. Transparency is not a bad thing, it allows you to grow and learn - and we are here to cheer and empower you to feel excited about getting started.
  • Be supportive of yourself and others. This one is deceptively simple. Not everyone can make a successful game, but it doesn't mean that not everyone can try. Be supportive of other peoples projects, post and ask them if they have anything new, ask them if they are struggling. Be open to ask about it, support them. In return if you post a topic, be empowered by the community showing support in your work.
  • Not all projects will be successful or see the light of day. It's okay. It is not a reflection of your life being a complete failure. This is hard, failures do happen. Get up and get back into the mix with your project, or start something new. Do not be afraid of being considered a failure, because honestly, there is no such thing.
  • Above all else, have fun, be creative, and have fun in your projects. Life is too short to take it all too seriously.
