I saw this GDC Classic Game Postmortem for Deus Ex by Warren Spector.

He talks about what he does before he makes a game to figure out if it's a good idea or not, for some reason he calls it the 6+2+1. He discusses it at the 11m39s mark in the video: https://youtu.be/tffX3VljTtI?t=11m39s

  1. What's the core idea?
  2. Why do this game?
  3. What are the dev challenges?
  4. Well-suited to games?
  5. What's the fantasy?
  6. What are the verbs?

  1. Has anyone done this before?
  2. What's the one thing?

  1. Do you have something to say?

I think this is a good starting set of questions to ask yourself about your game.

Feel free to use this thread to write down your answers to these 9 questions.
