PostSubject: Making a computer game checklist?   Sat Dec 25, 2010 5:51 am

Does anyone have a checklist for making a computer game or maybe we could make one?

Assets

  • Consider using a 3d game engine. (No ogre3d is not a game engine)
  • Characters
  • Artwork
  • Props
  • Weapons
  • Music
  • Sound effects
  • Voiceovers
  • Maps
  • ---> Package into asset containers
  • Tools


Engine

  • What features do you need?
  • Free for use?
  • Consider Unreal Development Kit (UDK)
  • Multiplayer?
  • Scripting?


Characters

  • Character models
  • Character meshes
  • Character skeletal structure for movement -> Physics


Artwork

  • Artwork can be a overview of a map. These can be made with the engine or drawn
  • Textures
  • Materials


Props

  • ...


Weapons

  • Ranged, melee?
  • No weapons but all action based game? Dock and cover.


Music

  • Static music or progressive music?
  • Progressive music is like the more you own the game the wilder the music gets


Sound Effects




Voiceover




Maps/Scenes

  • Design map structures; foliage, weather, sky,


Tools

  • Map editor
  • Code editor with syntax highlighting
  • 3D applications such as 3ds max, blender
  • Texture programs such as adobe photoshop, corel painter
    NOTE: There's programs that allows you to paint directly on the surface of your models, for example: Pixologic's ZBrush
  • Collada file format is a unified 3d assets format for sharing 3d assets between programs


Online sources
