Jordan Mechner’s 20 Tips on Making Games (PDF) ➶

My three favorites, especially the paper one:

  1. Draw inspiration from life and primary sources, not just other games and fiction.
  2. Develop personal practices that remind you to step back and see the big picture (engage the right side of your brain).
  3. Work on paper, not just on screens.

I bought Jordan’s English edition of his new book, Replay, which is out in March of 2024. Can’t wait!
