Pick Your Target Audience

Carefully considering your ideal audience is an important step in the design process. Think about your ideal players and ways to make your game appeal to them and get them hooked.

Choose a Game Engine

If you’re using a game engine to build your game, which engine you choose can make a difference to your game. Do your research and check your options before committing to an engine.

Selecting a Cross-Platform Game Engine

If "write once, deploy everywhere" is your goal, then you want a cross-platform engine. From Unity to HTML5, there are many great choices. Pick the one that's best for your game.

Pick the Right Tools and Support System

Choosing the right tool is always crucial to any project. Your engine choice could dictate how the majority of your development work is done, but there are other tools and platforms available to add extra functionality, support your users, and expand the reach of your game.
