Greetings to everyone in the community
I was reading the topic on GameDevTuts+ (http://gamedev.tutsplus.com/articles/roundups/start-here/) and i came accross the question. "Is it really important to have a game concept for a game?" I mean ask yourselfs, if you still wanna change and things in a finshed or almost finished game you would have to recreate or modify the concept. Or what if you would have a medium or small project? Would you still need a concept or not?
And to concept what kinda phases are there? Would there really be only 4 Phases or more? Is it like changeable like the HERMES Concept for IT project or is it something fix you just have to follow to have a successfull game?
Thank You For Your Feedback
