The Bespectacled One wrote:Found an interesting article on Rock, Paper, Shotgun concerning several general rules of game design. I found them to be good and simple guidelines and certainly things to think about in any stage of the game-development process.

You can read the story here.

My favorites:
Rock, Paper, Shotgun wrote:DO let me flush the toilets and turn on the taps. Scenery, in any game of any genre, shouldn�t be painted on the walls. And so many games before have put in a nice toilet flushing noise. Since all games do insist in including a toilet, as well they should, then all games should include the splishy sploshy noise of flushing it.
Rock, Paper, Shotgun wrote:DON'T leave diary entries by one person scattered over miles of corridors, buildings and countries. That�s not how a diary works. A diary tends to be all in one place. Most people, when journaling their lives, don�t tend to scribble it out on the nearest scrap of paper and then leave it wherever they wrote it. Because that would be utterly insane.

Awesome, Nice Tips XD

Thanks for sharing.
Lots of these are kind of obvious when you actually stop to think about it.

Good stuff to keep in mind during any game development.

That seems to be very common in indie games, it's the new form of collectibles. Though if it was the main focus of the game, it would suck. Perfect side quest material though I think.

Maybe new game idea: Research why there are so many diary pages strewn all over the world! ;) Maybe there's a diary-napping villain? Or is a new plague that affect the mind of people?
