Stuck for a new game idea? Just ask Ludo!
The Game Development Process

So you want to make a chart topping game? It all starts with an idea.

The games industry is growing exponentially. It is fast paced, competitive and challenging. Every day hundreds of thousands of new games come to market and consumer demand has never been higher. Games developers are constantly challenged to feed this growing demand with unique new games. They also continue to recognise the tried and tested games mechanics that remain well loved and well played. Today, a lot of emphasis is put on UA, analytics, monetization, and LTV, but the reality is that the game comes first. You need a great game idea that people will love.

There are an abundance of tools and resources for developers. No code/low code environments make it quick and easy to bring games to the market, regardless of the team or studio size. But where to start? This blog looks at how to begin creating that next great game idea.

Where to start?

The greatest game often comes from a simple and compelling idea. One of the biggest challenges for game developers is keeping that stream of new games ideas coming. The ‘gamestorming process’ is becoming more and more critical to studios of all sizes. It is especially important in hypercasual studios where MVPs need to be generated quickly and tested.

All it takes is one great brainstorming session to come up with that golden idea. However, these sessions can take a lot of time and energy. Time that a lot of companies cannot afford in such a fast paced industry. This is particularly applicable to small and solo developers. Communicating the idea with a GDD (game design document), with all the accompanying research, can also be a lengthy process.

How can Ludo help?
