I've been doing some reading. Like for example about how real game developers go about building a game storyboard and, which might be especially helpful in our case, avoiding feature creep. One good suggestion is narrowing down the scope to one "core statement" of the game - how would you describe this game in one sentence?

Now, an example is coming right up:

"Katamari Damacy is about rolling over things, picking them up and collecting them."

Original statement. Sounds rather silly, doesn't it?

Regardless of this, I tried coming up with a nice statement for ShattenReyze, but I couldn't really get the game mechanics straight in one sentence. Are we already suffering from feature creep, boys and girls?

Well, my statement is this:

"ShattenReyze is an interactive punk rock fairy tale about musicians bargaining with the devil."


Well...Hm. Any suggestions?

Phew, I've also tried that long time ago, but your version pretty much says it all.

I still try to compress the statement even more, but I constantly fail Grin
