Game Devs: How do you brainstorm ideas for your games? Do you start with settings & world-building? Do you start with mechanics & prototyping? Do you automatically dismiss any idea that seems like it's too much for one person?

All the kind of games I want to make fall into that last category :\. #gamedev #gamedesign

#gamedesign

common tropes/mechanics in Chinese mobage I observe both developed locally and in Taiwan/mainland China that I have observed:

* "destiny" feature where particular characters get stat bonuses by being with other characters or specific types of equipment. this may actually violate compu gacha in Japan
* quest/dungeon auto-complete tickets for rapid farming
* VIP system where spending money for in-game currency gives you more perks (p2w)
* inflated stat values

So, I'm watching #Kasparov's #Defcon speech and something started to bug me: (admittedly not a very original thought)
we know that computers can beat us at games, but could an AI design a game that would be fun to play for a human?
Talking about practical #AI, today.
Or is a truly good #gamedesign tied too close to the designers own way of thinking and their emotions that an AI couldn't meaningfully replicate that.
(obviously depends on one's definition of "good")
Anyways, something to ponder.

@djsundog Hmm... now I'm thinking millinery will be a some manner of perk granted to the Baylle Workers. ( #gamedesign #random )

— Dans mon univers à moi, les orcs sont différents. Ce ne sont pas des maraudeurs sauvage. En fait c'est une société rigide bien organisée avec un code de conduite, et...
— Ah oui, comme les Hobgobelins alors ?
— Ben non, parce que dans mon univers à moi, les hobgobelins, ce sont des nomades ultra-violents, à la limite nihilistes...
— Ah oui, comme des Orcs donc ?
