do I submit my Game Idea?
To submit Game Ideas to Game Discovery you will first have
to become a GD member. Signing up for a membership is free
and will only take a minute. As a member you will also join
the Member's Quest.
Who will review my Game Idea?
At the old GD site we used to review and write a comment to all Game
Ideas that people emailed to us before we uploaded them to the site.
The new Game Discovery site is far more advanced so you will now be
provided with your own control panel where you can freely upload and
edit your Game Ideas. Before your submitted game idea will make it to
our Game Idea Index it has to approve by a staff member. This is to make
sure your submission meets all the necessary criteria's for it to be included
in the main index. Game Ideas that that does not meet all index criteria's
will be placed in our Trash Can, but will still be available for people to
read. Game Ideas that we find inappropriate or submission that looks like
chat room posts will be deleted.
Can I sell my Game Idea?
No. Butů? No! Sorry to burst your bobble or amputate your
dream but we think it's for the best that we show you the
cold truth even though we know some of you don't want to hear
it. We at Game Discover have been in the Game Idea business
for many years, and we can tell you that there is no business.
It's a hobby, it's a passion, and it's about being creative.
If you are after fast cash then you must go elsewhere. Sorry
but you can't make a living from coming up with great ideas
for video games. Ok we lied, there are actually some people
who do this for a living, they are called Game Designers and
you will find one at almost any game company out there. The
thing is that coming up with ideas is just a small part of
their job and they often have years of experience in the industry
with programming, 3D modelling or whatever they were doing
before they got their job as Game Designers, truth is that
they were not just picked up from the local game store. If
your dream is to become a professional Game Designer then
you must be ready to take the often long and hard way, the
short easy way will not get you anywhere. Experience is the
key. Get all the experience you can is what you should be
worrying about for the next few years, not about getting your
first game idea sold. Game Discovery can be a great place
to start, and by submitting your Game Idea to Game Discovery
chances are that a hobby programmer will contact you after
reading your Idea. So now you as hobby Game Designer and your
new friend as hobby programmer can start a hobby game project
together. That's the right way to start, so do yourself a
favour and forget about the money for a while.
Do Game Companies surf Game Discovery
for Game Ideas?
First of all Game Discovery is dedicated to the creative gamers
out there. We believe Game Discovery is the first game development
site, which is targeted at gamers and not the game developers.
There is no doubt that professional game developers are surfing
the site, we have received many emails from big name game
companies and game designers complementing the site. The site
is of course most popular amongst amateur game developers,
but that's even better because that's the people who will
make tomorrow's big games.
Why should I submit my Game Idea to
There are thousands of people regularly visiting Game Discovery,
ranging from gamers to industry professionals. It's time to
show the world what great ideas you have. We all want to see
original and innovative games, and instead of bitching about
how many unoriginal games there are coming out these days
you now have the chance to contribute some originality yourself.
You will be rewarded with GP (Virtual Gold Pieces) for every
Game Idea you submit. If your Game Idea turns out real popular
amongst our readers you will receive a big GP bonus. GP can
be used to buy items and activities in Member's Quest. You
can also buy real software or games if you have enough GP!
(some of these features are not yet added to the site).
So will I get the credit if somebody
uses my Game Idea?
We can only encourage people who use Game Ideas at Game Discovery
to give credit to the author. So far this have worked fine
as most amateur game developers have no problem with giving
credit to people who have helped them out on their project.
It's how the underground game development community works;
if you use somebody else's work in your own project you must
give them credit for their contribution. When it comes to
professional game development things gets a little bit more
complicated, naturally because of the big money involved in
such projects. But who knows? You might get a little thank
you in the end credits in the next Final Fantasy, but don't
count on it :)
