Hello friends,

I have gathered some advices I wish someone told me a long time ago.

I wrote an article about 7 mistakes that helped me become a better game designer and programmer. I wish to share them with you, tell me what you think, here's a link to the article : http://www.gameplaypassion.com/blog/7-mistakes-that-will-make-you-a-better-game-designer/

Here is a brief summary of the 7 mistakes I talk about in my article :

  • Excessively and Negatively Criticizing Other (published) Games
     
  • Designing a Huge Game That Has Everything in It
     
  • Focusing on the Plot From the Beginning
     
  • Overestimating Your (or your team’s) Technical Skills
     
  • Crossing Genres for Your First Game Ever
     
  • Comparing Yourself With the Big Guys In the Market
     
  • Recruiting People That Have No Interest In Making Games
