This is a template of a Game Design Document. This template is more so geared towards someone who is new to creating a Game Design Document and would like some more help in doing so. Its set up to be printed out and written on, hence the lines everywhere.

THIS IS MOSTLY COMPLETE. USE UNDER THE PRETENSE THAT THIS DOCUMENT WILL BE GETTING UPDATED OCCASIONALLY, AND MOSTLY DUE TO A PAGE REQUEST.

You can see the things that have already been suggested or are currently being worked on HERE.

Notes:

I wouldn't recommend printing out the definitions section every single time you print the document. That's a lot of paper that you only need one copy of.

Please make a post in the community to request a page be added, or if you've made your own pages that you'd like to share with others.

If you think a page or section that should be in the document isn’t, have a general suggestion, or are confused about something in general, then please contact me. You can email me at Retrocademedia@gmail.com or you can create a post in the Community section of this page. If you think that Google Docs itself doesn’t have enough features to do what you want, that's fine, Google Docs allows you to download files and move them to other programs. Or, if you would like to use something alongside google docs, like Trello or Draw.io (Which is great for making flowcharts and mind maps), then feel free to use links or google addons!
