List of Design Documents

Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

Post » Tue Feb 12, 2013 2:42 am

I think that design docs for games are a great source of knowledge about the art/science of game design.

In this topic I want to collect the freely available design docs from finished games, so other can see how where those games started.

Feel free to add your finds - I will occasional edit this first post to include any of your "new finds" and the docs I will stumble upon.

Without further ado, links to game design docs in alphabetical order:

Some very interesting links (especally enjoyed reading about Planescape Torment).

For anyone interested in RPG creation, there's a few good design documents and extras which relate to Zeboyd games' indie game 'Cthulhu Saves The World' which can be downloaded here: http://zeboyd.com/free-stuff/

Woah - very cool.

Never thought to read a design doc of another project. Pretty cool to take a peek at how others think about their projects.
