Regardless of whether you are a complete beginner or you have been doing board game design for years, there are a few tips that you should know when creating a digital board game. First, you should understand that board games are fun engines. Players put in the time and effort necessary to play them, and they get the fun out of that investment. The goal is to maximize this ratio. Of course, this is easier said than done.
To get started, try to build a simple digital board game first. Then, move on to more complicated games. As a first project, try creating a version of Checkers, Snakes, and Ladders or a similar game. It should take at least six days to create and polish.
Another tip to remember is to get feedback. Remember, no great game was created in a vacuum. It is important to get other designers’ feedback to make your game better. Playtesting is one way to get this feedback. By getting other designers’ feedback, you can tweak your game design and get it published. Many people have even received publishing deals just by seeking feedback.
Before you start working on the full version of your game, it’s helpful to create a simple test version. Rather than spending a lot of time on creating perfect images, draw some basic versions of your game. You can even use images from Google to get an idea of what you want. Remember, this is just a placeholder and will probably change.
