I think the steps are... 1. Document drafting(engine, story...) 2. Coding the engine 3. Coding the Level Maker?? 5. Debugging... 6. DONE!! I don't have any experience with that, so just is my thinking. What is your opinion?

Well, all those steps kind of melded into one, yeah. At least some form of planning has to come first. Then the engine (being debugged as it goes) usually gets coded at the same time as some kind of level editor, otherwise how would you test each new feature of your game if you have no levels to test it on?

I believe you will also have trouble coding the level editor as the last thing you do. Of course it will depend on the game, but it is impossible to forsee how a game will perform in real time without the final game levels loaded. I'd imagine that the coding of the level editor and engine go hand in hand, since the level editor can reuse a lot of source code from the engine in many cases.
