Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I start using the Game Ideator tool?

    You can start generating an idea for a game by inputting your keywords, phrases, or game titles in the Game Ideator text input box. You should also specify the platform you are targeting in the filters, and eventually one or more game genres.

    By default, Ludo will generate concept art for the generated game ideas. If you want these images to follow a specific art style, make sure to choose it in the filters.

    Have fun, experiment, and remember to save the results you like to your "Favorites" by clicking "Add To Favorites" on the top right of a game idea. If you want to start a game concept document based on a game idea, click on “Select this idea”. More on this in the question below.

  • What kind of inputs can I provide?

    You can provide any combination of keywords, game mechanics, themes, game sub-genres, specific existing games, or even one of your Game Concepts.

    Here are some examples of inputs that show some of the possibilities in the Game Ideator tool. If you have preference towards specific game genres, platform, or art style, make sure to select them first.

    • cyberpunk endless runner
    • huge sword
    • merge robots
    • strategy game with monkeys
    •, outer space
    • Call of Duty, Candy Crush Saga
    • pirates
    • 4x strategy
    • fantasy RPG

  • How can I take a Game Idea to the next step?

    If you like one of the generated game ideas and want to take it further, click on "Select this idea" to start the process of creating a new game concept based on the idea. In the Game Concept tool, we offer all the necessary tools to take this idea to a fully formed game design document.

    You have the option of starting with just the text and title of the idea (plus some generated images) by clicking on "Default". Or If you want to start with a more complete Game Concept, choose one of the available templates. In this case, the game concept will start with the text and title of the idea, plus the sections that you selected, automatically filled with suggestions from Ludo AI.

  • How does the Game Ideator feature contribute to the ideation process?

    The Game Ideator is a tool that assists you in fleshing out your game ideas. It guides you through various aspects of game design such as gameplay mechanics, characters, settings, and more. By providing prompts and suggestions, it ensures your ideas are comprehensive and well-developed.

  • What are the Regular / Trendy / Ludicrous modes?

    These modes affect the game ideas that are generated in the Game Ideator.

    • Regular Mode: will stick to the keywords, phrases, or game titles you are inputting or referencing to come up with your new game idea.
    • Trendy Mode: will combine your prompts with the latest trending games in a randomized format to come up with your new game idea.
    • Ludicrous Mode: will combine your prompts with random, outside-the-box concepts to generate an unexpected game idea.

  • The generated ideas seem to be ignoring some of my inputs, what can I do?

    If you use a very mixed set of inputs (incompatible or unrelated to one another), it might happen that the generated results are related to only part of your inputs and ignore others.

    Some of the things you can try if this happens:

    1. Make sure you have the Regular Mode selected.
    2. Try reducing the number of inputs if you have multiple. If you are using multiple existing games, avoid selecting more than two. If you are using multiple keyphrases, try reducing the number of them (three to five at most).
    3. Make sure your keyphrases are well written, clear, and unambiguous. Avoid acronyms or abbreviations. If you are selecting games for the input, you might want to try different ones.

  • Can I use the Game Ideator to generate ideas for specific game genres or platforms?

    Absolutely! Within the Game Ideator, you have the ability to select your desired game genres from options like hyper casual, casual, core and more. You can also specify the platform you are targeting, such as mobile or PC. This allows you to tailor the generated game ideas to your specific project needs.

  • Does the Game Ideator generate visual concept art for the game ideas?

    Yes, by default the Game Ideator will automatically generate concept art images to accompany each game idea that is created. You can even choose a specific art style for these images, such as anime, cartoon, or 3D. The visual concepts help bring your ideas to life right from the start.

  • How can I save my favorite game ideas generated by the tool?

    Whenever the Game Ideator generates an idea that resonates with you, simply click the "Add To Favorites" button located at the top right of that specific game idea. This will save it to your Favorites within the Ludo platform, allowing you to easily reference, organize and further develop your top ideas.

  • Is there a way to build on a game idea I like within Ludo?

    Yes! If you want to expand one of the AI-generated game ideas into a more robust game design document, click the "Select this idea" button on the idea of your choice. This will let you begin crafting a detailed Game Concept around that idea using Ludo's dedicated Game Concept feature and templates.

  • What's the best way to get the most relevant game ideas for my needs?

    For the most targeted results, it's recommended to utilize the genre, platform and art style filters in the Game Ideator. Also, provide clear, concise keywords or reference games as input - prioritize quality over quantity. Lastly, stick to Regular Mode for ideas most aligned with your inputs. Experiment with the tool and have fun seeing the creative concepts it generates just for you!

  • What should I do if the game ideas generated seem too similar to my keyword inputs?

    If you're finding the generated ideas are sticking too closely to your provided keywords or reference games without enough variation, there are a couple things you can try. First, switch from Regular Mode to either Trendy or Ludicrous Mode to introduce more randomness and outside inspiration. You can also try modifying your inputs - reduce the number of keywords or pick reference games from different genres to get the AI to combine the concepts in unique ways.

  • Can I change the art style of the images after ideas are already generated?

    Currently, the art style setting needs to be selected before generating the game ideas. The chosen style then applies to all images created in that batch. If you want images for a game idea in a different style, select the idea to create a new game concept with it, change the art style of the game concept, and then generate new images.

  • What are the games listed below each new game idea?

    The games listed below each generated idea fall into two categories:

    • Similar Trending Games: Currently popular games that share key elements with your idea. Studying these hits provides insights into what's working well in the market and how you might adapt those successful features or strategies.
    • Similar Games: A broader look at all released games conceptually related to your idea, regardless of current performance. Analyzing these titles helps gauge the overall level of competition and saturation in that gaming niche.

    Treat these suggested games as a starting point for market research and competitor analysis. Examining their strengths, weaknesses, and player reception can help you refine your own idea to stand out and better resonate with target audiences. The Similar Games also highlight potential gaps or underserved player desires you could tap into.

    You can click on each game to dive deeper into its details like screenshots, descriptions and key stats to further inform your ideation process.

  • What kind of game trends are shown in each game idea, and how do I use that information?

    The Related Game Trends highlight broader trending topics, mechanics, and themes that the AI has detected are relevant to the generated idea. For example, you might see trends like "Parkour Games", "Roguelike Adventures", or "Anime Art Style". Investigating these trends can uncover opportunities to incorporate popular elements into your idea to boost its market appeal. The trends are also clickable, allowing you to explore further and see example games driving the trend.

  • Can I search for more similar games or trends?

    Yes! We offer a number of similar games and topics next to each game idea. But if you want to search for more, you have two relevant actions in the game idea panel:

    Search similar: This will take you to the Search tool where you'll see related games, images, and icons, searched across the entire game database.

    Search trends: This will take you to the Daily Trends tool where you'll see related trending games and trending game topics.

  • Where can I see what input parameters were used to generate an idea?

    The Generation Parameters section lists out all the keyword inputs, reference games, genre and platform selections, and other settings that were used when generating that particular idea. Having the generation recipe easily accessible is handy if you want to create variations of an idea you like by running the Ideator again with tweaked settings. It also helps you remember the creative intent behind each idea.
