This FAQ should answer most of your questions about this section. Reading this Game Idea FAQ should give you a better understanding of GD Game Ideas and its concept, so you fully can take advantage of what this site has to offer.






How 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 Game Discovery?
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 :)

We will look forward to read your Game Idea. Log into your members account to submit. If you are not member yet click here to sign up. Signing up for a membership will only take a minute and it is 100% free.
