The four phases of the design process
When we hack something, we change it or use it for something other than what it was designed for. In this phase, we disassemble the game system and assemble the parts in a new way.
It can be difficult to come up with a good and original game idea . In this phase, we use games, time pressure and rapid prototyping to develop new game ideas at speed.
Once the idea is in place, you must build a playable prototype and test it. When others play your game, you see it with fresh eyes. You get feedback that can make the game better.
When you yourselves think the game is finished, it's time to share it. You learn how to pitch a game and get tools to evaluate your work process as a game team.
