How to make an online game

Ever wondered what the process for designing an interactive game is?

1. Firstly the concept needs to be decided and fleshed out in the form of a brief.

2. From there alongside the client we story board each scene or sequence, detailing the activity, scripting the actions and characters as well as working out how the audience will use the controls.

3. Once the brief, storyboard and sequence of events has been written and signed off an illustrator is engaged to bring all the characters to life and a programmer to build the game to spec.

4. Each games is broken down into multiple stages, each of which are tested extensively to ensure all the interactive elements work instinctively and each scenario is makes sense in the context of the entire game.
