Game 2: Planning and Ideas

It is planning time for game # 2.  I know that I want to make a platformer, but beyond that I don’t really have anything set in stone.  Where do I go from here?

Well, this is what I am trying out:

I have started carrying around a little pocket notebook and pen.  I tend to have ideas and flashes of insight hit me at random times and I wanted to make sure that I recorded them.  The ideas can be anything from controls to menu design to notes on art style.

I know that I can just take notes on my phone, but the little notebook has been more convenient.  I can quickly not something down or make a sketch without having to pull up the proper app. I have mentioned before about making a design document for every game. The one for this game is just going to be a bit less clean and formal.

Who knows, this might become the normal way I do things.  We shall see.
