How long does it take to create game prototypes?
Very little, because prototypes should not be aesthetic. Their functionality is:
- answer certain questions
- to discover the problems of the game
- indicate how they can be solved
You don’t have to invest a lot of time in making them look pretty. Usually 1-2 days should be enough to prototype the main mechanics of a game.
If the game idea is very complex, it may take a few more days.
Why do you need a game prototype?
When you start a video game project, your ideas may look and feel functional, but to be sure, you need to test them: this way you can ensure the success of your video game.
The ideal is to start the prototyping phase at an early stage. The purpose of this is to discover as early as possible various interface or mechanical problems that can be easily solved.
Game prototyping should be used as both idea generators and alternative exploration solutions. Because game prototypes are physical representations of your ideas, it allows you to think by doing, which means you will gain more value from the research, definition, ideation and testing processes.
You need game prototypes because they will help you explore and experiment with ideas, problems and opportunities and test the impact of the changes you will make during the project.
What is game prototyping?
Game prototyping is one of the most important parts of the game development process.
It consists of creating a method to test the game concept. It is a way to test if the video game is viable in practice without investing too much money and time.
Prototyping is also used to find methods to optimize the game mechanics and make it as fun as possible.
It does not matter if the prototype development is done on paper or created in a digital environment. Generally, a rough and fast game prototype is used for quality testing and learning in the early stages.
More detailed prototypes are useful for testing or pilot testing near the end of the project.
