Finding The Fun Via Rapid Development~~

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

An outline of our alternative work pipeline and how prioritizing making a game fun to play makes
it both more engaging to develop and scope, and gets the job done quicker.

1. Game development as a creative endeavor.
    A.) Ditching design docs and alternative approaches to design
    B.) Enjoying the process of development through learning and self-improvement.
    C.) If it isn't fun to make and test, it's probably not fun to play.
2. Rapid development process
    A.) Why is rapid development useful and how can I do it?
        i) a good product delivered quickly > a good product slowly
        ii) getting good at something feels good
        iii) having time for new things is healthy, don't dread working on the same project
        iv) game jams
    B.) The base (iterating and practicing making a genre of game over and over)
    C.) The hook (experimentation with interesting mechanics)
    D.) The polish (playing with the world and adding unnecessary amounts of detail)
        i. get the bullshit out of the way by this point.
    E.) The content (making levels, enemies, bosses, etc.--the rest of development is FUN)
