A Terrible TutorialEdit

All you need for a game is an idea. Write down the premise for the game; make it sound real, something people would read. Write characters or groups of characters that you can think of. Decide which would be villains and which heroes. Find out which other characters you need.

Do some research. Check the forums. Eat something. Write a bit of flow. Brainstorm. Make lots of elaborate plans about what you need to write; revise them again and again.

Type it; if you already have, format it like you would an essay you want to look professional and take up more room. More flow? Write down which characters are group leaders, and who else is important.

Do nothing at all for a very long time until inspiration smacks you in the face. Then type A LOT. A lot a lot. Until your fingers and neck hurt and you think you have carpal tunnel. Until you forget how to spell words. Until your breathing is heavy and your face is red and you smell bad.

Try to finish the flow. More characters. Define the setting and major people and basis of the game. Think about a teaser.

Write a teaser. Finish other bits.

And then you have a game.
