Author: HaroldRaichur



it began as a 2 hr workshop,as a means to introduce one to game design practically & in quick time. The more i did these workshops, the more i realized that it not only allowed people to understand , but also apply design in a simple & easy manner.Every workshop ended with groups of participants coming up with small games, which an hour back was literally impossible. all that was needed, a few bits of paper, pen or pencil, dice & game bits and a whole lot of interaction, brainstorming, design thinking, creating game rules & testing playable game prototypes.

The realization of having designed something as unthinkable as a game, with literally nothing & having enjoyed playing it with friends all of this & more within 2 hours, is an unbelievable experience to have.

In Games FUN = a meaningful gameplay experience.

What is a GAME An activity with RULES-It is a form of play, often but not always involving conflict, either with other players or with the game system itself.(Challenges for Game Designers) OR Games are a “system in which players engage in an artificial conflict, defined by rules, that results in a quantifiable outcome (Rules of Play) Name a Game WITHOUT rules

What is GAME design Its is NOT Art, It is NOT Programming “Game Design is the process of creating the CONTENT and the RULES a SYSTEM for that game. Good game design is the process of creating GOALS that a player feels motivated to reach and the rules that a player must follow as he makes meaningful decisions in pursuit of those goals

Rules = System Design= Mechanics • Rules for setup-How does the game begin? • Rules for progression of play- Once the game begins, what can the players do, and what happens when they do things? • Rules for resolution- What, if anything, causes the game to end? If the game has an outcome (such as winning or losing), how is that outcome determined? The creation of those rules is System Design
