Getting New Ideas for Video Games ( Part 1 )
A Springboard for Video Game Developers
Creating video games is an art, no doubt. The problem is that it isn't easy to come up with ideas for video games. And even when we do get an idea, it doesn't seem as fresh or exciting as we want sincere to steward. The following offers a few ways you can generate some creative ideas to keep your video game over fun to play from beginning to end.
1. Make it funny. Humor has a wonderful way of transforming the seemingly dreadful boring absorption something that's not one shot tolerable, but engaging as well. And if boredom is an illness, laughter is its cure. If you can inject jokes, funny imagery, or goofy characters into your game, your players will relax and associate your game with good heart - a definite formula for success.
2. Let your mind wander off the beaten aisle. Since much of our thinking is associative anyway, there's no reason why you couldn't manifest this association into your video game. When matchless idea makes you think of another, allow for it as part of a video game no matter how illogical the connection is ( at first ). Remember that video games are your platform for percipience. It's time to be a little wild and a little unconventional. Without this free - form thinking, we surely wouldn't have the creative gems that we have today. You can always restore a sense of logic back into the game at an appropriate time.
3. Make your dreams come true. Literally, turn your dreams into video game scenarios. Had a nightmare lately? Include the unholy material in the game. Had a ridiculously stupid dream lately? Include it in the game as a detour or distraction. Sometimes dreams can express more interesting as life, and as a video game developer, you want your games to be the duplicate. Keep a dream journal and write down those bizarre experiences you have at night. Your gamers will thank you for it.
4. Case history one's way. Let's be honest - Nature is pretty weird. We have bees flying around and pollinating plants. We retain water evaporating into the sky and then falling down from clouds as rain. Childbirth is a strange story itself, and germs - the elementary thing on the planet can bring down a herd of elephants. If you could emulate some of this crazy stress in your own video games, you will have done what every friend secretly wishes he could discharge himself. And that's take stuff into your own hands and shape it into the materiality you want! But don't copy nature faithfully. Twist it around. For example, instead of bees flying around and pollinating plants, your video game could have 3 - inch aliens swift around and pollinating brainwashed FBI agents. Starting to get the idea?
5. Dig into History. Another good resource for video game material is our own history - but not the interminable stuff. We're talking about the good stuff. The embarrassing stuff. Look for odd and weird news online and include the asinine things that people have done in the past as part of your game's plot. Your players won't believe what they're seeing!
6. Go Metaphor Happy. Metaphors are figures of speech in which expressions are used to refer to earnest that corporeal does not literally denote. It simply suggests a similarity. We're not sure, but we're pretty convinced that a lot of the space ships in video games are based on what we chronicle the " nuts and bolts " metaphor. If you regarding closely at the designs of some of these vehicles, and then look at some of the utensils you have in your toolbox, you'll start to see a similarity among the two like we did. You responsibility do the same in your video games to come up with some really unique imagery and situations.
