The Game Crafter Official Podcast

Jun 7, 2018











So you have a new game idea and maybe a fresh mechanism (in your mind) and you want to start on it. But first, you decide to research other games that might be similar to yours to make sure it's as new and fresh as you think it might be. Hours, maybe days, go by and you're still researching!


Is there an easy way to do this research? Should you do this research? What if there is a game similar to yours?


These are some of the ideas discussed be JT and Jeff thanks to this week's listener request!
