Here’s the Visual Design Doc for Django, our first project. After spending years writing gdd’s, ldd’s, and other dd’s that no one reads, I have switched to crafting VDD’s for games, features, and levels. Two things happen when you make a one-page: the team actually gets excited, and you start to know immediately what will work and what won’t.
Django is going to be made on such a tight schedule, we’ll see how much of this sticks. Oh yeah, and I’ve tentatively named the game ‘Rescue Love Revenge’.
The game in a nutshell:
- automatically run
- tap to jump, hold to jump higher
- time jumps to bounce off of stuff
- edgy revenge theme
