I am currently spearheading an experimental project involving game evaluations and breakdowns. On my website I have a section called "The Book". I have developed an evaluation form for games of all genres, platforms, and styles. These forms are intended to be filled out by anyone, and focus on unique points of gameplay and use of game concepts (reads, maps, ramping, etc.). I intend to take all of the breakdowns and compile them into a PDF e-book of unique game concepts to help beginning designers with pre-production research. I am still finalizing the way the submissions work, but you can access the template on my site and email the finished product to me. If you would like to take part in this project please visit my website: www.BretWardle.com
. I also host anyone’s free games, and a discussion forum there as well if you are interested.
