Game Loop Ideation
Early, unfiltered brainstorming allowed us to start the design process with loads of ideas to cut through. Each team member laid out their idea of what the core game loop was after we briefed on the client's design goals. Opening up these internal assumptions for each team member to view opened up many possibilities for the team.
After said game loops were created, we reviewed each game loop individually. We asked and answered as many questions about each loop as we could, until our questions could only be solved through prototypes.
