Games in the backlog

If you are a curious about what are the games we are going to be developing next, then we have something for you, the name of the next 6 games in our backlog!

Week 4th: Tic Tac Toe. Aimed for kids, there will be no AI. The computer is going to select a place at random.

Week 5th: Colours. A basic painting app. Select the color from the buckets, select the area you want to fill in the image, and done.

Week 6th: Connect the dots. Click the dots in order (from 1 to N) to reveal the object.

Week 7th: Street/River crossing. Help a frog cross the street/river without being hit or eaten by cars and predators.

Week 8th: Whack a mole. Hit the mole as soon as you can once you see it appear.

Whack this Mole!

Week 9th: Maze. Go from A to Z without touching the walls or you lose.

It's getting harder and harder to come up with new game ideas that are simple, but luckly our experience and processes are getting better and we can tackle bigger game projects now, so the next 6 are going to be much more awesome!

Game design documents

Put it simple, game design documents are documentation about games that cover things like what is the game about, what is the target audience, what are the game mechanics and to some extent how the game is going to be developed. Writing a game design document is useful to validate a game idea before starting its implementation and is also a valuable document to atract new team members and/or investors. Here there is a list of some document design documents we've found and could serve you as a foundation for your game: Organize your game dev Game pitches Runaway studios GDD An Ant's life Project Scarab Deathwith 1931

One game, multiple platforms

One of the best and worst parts of developing games Today is the number of target platforms you could use to market your game. There is a proliferation of game consoles (Xbox, PlayStation, Wii) and in addition to that there are many mobile devices (leaded by Android, iOS) and then you have good old desktop and the shiny new Web. Each platform is appealing for their very own reasons, but they also bring different challenges. The decision of what platform your game is aiming for is based on things like team experience, budget (both time and money) and of course, also your target audience. (are they young? are they casual gamers?) Here at Ponup Games we do Web and mobile games mostly because of the time and team size constraints. We would love to work on bigger projects eventually, but this is all we can do at the moment.
