Working on my GDD

I have a rough draft of my GDD I threw up on a website, and was wondering if I could get some opinions.  On the GDD.  I know the website is an eyesore, rife with spelling and gramatical errors, the web design is attrocious, but all that can be fixed later.  Right now I want to flesh out the GDD.

Anything missing?  Anything I should expand on? Any details or questions I should be addressing?  What do you think of the design ideas themselves, barebones as they are presented there at the moment?

Sorry to break it to you man, but that's not a GDD.  It's the start of an idea.

 

For an example of a GDD, go to http://www.runawaystudios.com/articles/chris_taylor_gdd.asp.

It has a link to a generic GDD which you can download and use to write out your GDD more completely.

 

For what it's worth:  I like where your head is on the game ideas.  

But you aren't going to get any serious bites without some of the finer details figured out first.

It sucks about as much as writing a business plan, but without it there's no path to travel.

 

Good luck to ya!

The site needs a bit of a grammar go-through as well.  Sentences like "I think this project lends it's self well to a crowdfunding  campaign..."  need to be looked at.  You want to have the site looking as professional as possible.  I agree though, it's reading like the bare-bones start of an idea.  You don't say what the game's about, what kind of a game it is - MMO, RPG, RTS, what?  

 

Hope this helps.

 

(edit:  I did go up one and saw Meatsack's comments, then went back to your site.  So I did finally see that there's other stuff on it than the main page.  Personally I'd see just that as a red flag but then it might be that this is correctly organized and I'm not used to it just yet).

I know it's awfult to look at (was the default game site layout, which I will change drastically), and it truly is a rough draft with no autocorret.  Was just trying to get out as much as I could so I could reshape and organize it later.  I'm trying to drain an ocean's worth of content through a garden hose, and it's slow going.

 

So it's not a GDD yet.  More of a context in which to present the GDD, at least for the initial stages. 

 

I'll give it an overhaul this week, probably start from scratch.  Those default graphics are garbage
