Game design just got a lot easier
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
- aquapark.io, outer space
- Call of Duty, Candy Crush Saga
- 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: Ludo.ai will stick to the keywords, phrases, or game titles you are inputting or referencing to come up with your new game idea.
- Trendy Mode: Ludo.ai will combine your prompts with the latest trending games in a randomized format to come up with your new game idea.
- Ludicrous Mode: Ludo.ai 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:
- Make sure you have the Regular Mode selected.
- 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).
- 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.
