I noticed i needed to improve my skill in writing game pitches and ideas. So to challenge myself i setup this small list of rules. Might be something to try. It worked well for me to get going with the writing and not over thinking things smile.png.

1: Use Mobygames random function to pick four existing games. The link to the next random game is two crossed arrows to the right of the sites menu links.
2: For each one write a three paragraph game concept that use the selected game for inspiration.

    Do - What do the player do.
    Look - How do the player see it and what does it look like.
    Pillars - Core elements of the game

3: Sort the games with the ones you would write more about at the top (A) and the least preferable ones at the end of the list (D).
4: Roll a D10 to pick one of the games.

  •     A: 7-10
  •     B: 4-6
  •     C: 2-3
  •     D: 1

5: Write a three page pitch (with pictures) about the game .
