What is "game design"? The purpose of this forum (READ BEFORE YOU POST)

Recommended Posts

This forum is for discussion about game design. A lot of people post questions here that do not belong here, probably because they think "game design" is a catch-all term for anything related to game development. IT IS NOT.  The catch-all term for anything related to developing games is "game development." The catch-all term for someone involved in developing games is "game developer," not "game designer." Game design is a subset of game development (NOT VICE VERSA). 

Game design is "the act of defining a game in detail." Game Design is not "programming," and it isn't "graphic design." It's mostly ideation and communication. Please do not post technology questions or career questions or business questions on this board.
