art studio with game design in mind?

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about opening an art studio some years from now. We'd have a gallery for paintings and sculptures and things like that, and in one wing of the studio there'd be a sound-proof recording studio for sounds and music. You could have some classes for children and others for adults to come and learn how to paint and play music, but there would also be a group that specifically comes together for game design. It'd be something like a creative writing group, and they would all work to produce what is effectively the screenplay/playwrite/manuscript for the game-- the "design document". But the group could actually play out the game, up to a point, for real like you would as a kid. You'd all be wrestling, shooting with squirt guns, or just playing with cards (blank index cards that someone drew pictures on). We'd talk through the game and balance out the basic rules, and jot some things down. You'd then write up the treatments and progressively work on the design document (written in StarOffice, MS Word, etc.). What do you think? Let's throw some ideas around, eh?
