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.
