Hello, guys! I want to share with you my last article on Tuts+ about necessity of GDD creation, common mistakes with that and some tips (from our experience) how we can avoid them. Every indie developer or team has asked themselves how best to manage the development process. Is it obligatory to use detailed documentation, such as the legendary game design document (GDD)? What are the most common mistakes, and how can they be avoided? For those who have searched for answers to these questions, I want to share our team's experience of creating our GDD. http://gamedevelopment.tutsplus.com/articles/how-and-why-to-write-a-great-game-design-document--cms-23545
You may only dream about work on your project, lying on the sunshine on the islands in the ocean, or you can buy tickets and make the dreams came true. This summer, our team goes to Bali to finish the game. A few words about the project Slashear is an adventure/platformer with unusual mechanics. The plot revolves around a brave boy who gets into wild adventures. During the game, our hero finds himself in different worlds, inhabited by weird creatures. You will have to deal with battles with dangerous enemies and saving the universe. The game is done in a cartoon style with bright, detailed characters. The player is a part of this cartoon, with the ability to influence the storyline! About development We've been working on the game for about a year, during which time we've written the engine and finalised the game style. To finish the game we need a small tug to bring together all the concepts and developments. So we've moved to Bali for 2 months in order to focus on development. We have rented a house there and started to work. Another reason for moving in Bali is our love for surfing and the cheap rent for the apartment. We are a small team of people who love their job and happy to share interesting working moments. Life on the island is very unusual, and especially the game development in such conditions! We want to share with you this. Therefore, we will be blogging, taking photos and video reports on the development of the island.
