‘Take advantage of your resources like local game stores to run demos of your game to get feedback. If you are only playing your prototype with friends and family, you are missing out on opportunities.’ – Ray Wisneski
‘Listen for the heart of the feedback. Playtesters can’t always find the exact mechanism, but they know what part they liked & didn’t” – Peter Gousis

Designer Wisdom

“Letting go of a design is a hard thing for a designer to do, but holding on to a design long after it is viable can waste your time, energy, and passion.” – Nat Levan
“Try to play your game as quickly as possible. Find out whether your core idea has the spark to be interesting. Don’t think about it; try it. Forget about balancing, artwork and UI. Instead try to define what you consider to be the core mechanisms, and test whether they are fun at all.” – Asger Sams Granerud
