Starting a Project
The one thing that has stayed the same for all this time is the beginning. You can only develop a game when you have a good idea. This is the beginning of your development process. This is the phase where we brainstorm a lot together with our client. An analysis to truly understand what they want and what kind of game suits them best. Because a good idea for a game is only a good idea if it fits the needs of the client.
Grasping the Concept
Games are a visual medium, combined with the interaction this create the strong attraction games have on people. Already at the very first concept phase we use drawings and sketches to communicate our ideas. This can be flowcharts to explain the level structure or simple sketches of the intended characters.
When the final concept has been thought out, the gameplay elements are tested on the target audience and all the technical challenges have been mapped out, the real work begins. This is the moment the production phase start. All the decisions and outcomes from the previous two phases are now being transformed into the actual game. For us, this is always a magical moment, because everything starts to come alive.
