Backin’ it Up!
Talk about your idea with friends and potential end-users. Do they agree that this is a problem that could be solved through game design?
You have your game concept, that’s great! But now you need to run your idea by your potential audience to see what other people think. It’s time for some constructive criticism. It’s much easier to make changes to your concept at the very beginning, rather than trying to shoe-horn major changes into your game further down the road. So take this opportunity to run your game concept by friends, fellow students, work colleagues, and the wider Game Changers community. Make notes, discuss potential changes to your idea, and most importantly, have fun doing it!
