Story and plot
The story of your game is one of the most important parts of it. You need to make sure that the story you are telling is interesting and exciting, has a beginning, middle, and end, and is complete. It should not be too long or too short. If your story has no beginning or ending then it will be difficult for players to understand what they are supposed to do in order to complete the game (make sure there are clear instructions for gameplay).
When it comes to characters, there are a few things that you’ll want to consider. First and foremost, your characters need to be interesting. They also need a purpose. Without either of these things, your game will lack depth and the player won’t care about what’s going on in it—not a good situation for anyone involved! That said, what exactly makes a character “interesting?” Well…
- Characters should have backstories. You can think of backstory as the history behind why this person acts like they do now (or maybe before). For example: What was their childhood like? Did they grow up in an orphanage? Did their parents die young? How did their friends treat them when they were kids? Did other kids bully them because they had red hair or freckles or whatever? Did they ever get into any fights with those bullies later on in life (and if so… how did those go)? All of these questions contribute to developing our understanding of what kind of person this is supposed to be; which leads us nicely onto…
- Characters should also have clear motivations for doing whatever it is that motivates them today! This helps us understand not only why our heroes act the way they do right now but also gives us hints about where future storylines might take place within this world—which brings me neatly back around again: If I had wanted my protagonist just sitting there doing nothing while nothing happened around her then why would anyone buy something from me?!
Gameplay is a big part of any game, and it’s important that you make sure your game has good gameplay. The gameplay should be fun, challenging, and give the player a sense of accomplishment.
You can make sure your gameplay is fun by using elements like rewards for completing tasks or puzzles, an increasing challenge level that keeps the player engaged throughout their experience (not too difficult), and adding some variety with different types of enemies or obstacles.
For instance, in Super Mario Bros., if you’re having trouble with one particular level or boss character then at some point during play there will be an easier level that offers similar challenges but won’t require as much skill to complete–these are called “easier” levels because they allow players who aren’t ready yet to get used to playing before facing tougher ones later on in their adventure. But those who do well enough on these earlier stages will unlock harder ones where they’ll have even more opportunity for growth as players!
A video game needs a good story, characters, and gameplay.
A video game is an interactive electronic game. The main goal of a video game is to entertain the player by controlling characters and situations, exploring scenarios, solving problems, and making decisions within them. A video game typically involves interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a two- or three-dimensional screen such as a TV show or movie would use; however, some systems (such as those using virtual reality headsets) provide the player with additional sensory stimuli such as sound through speakers or headphones.
The elements needed for a good video game are:
- Story – The main plot of your story could be anything from fighting aliens to saving princesses from castles! The more fun it is for everyone involved, the better!
- Characters – Characters can be animals, people who live in different parts of the world… anything that might keep people interested in your game! They also need names so we can talk about them later on when telling others about our experiences playing this amazing new creation we’ve come up with together :)
- Gameplay – This one’s pretty obvious but might need more explaining depending on what kind of genre you’re going after here… do they have guns? Swords? Magic powers? Can they fly? Are they missing limbs?
