Sakurai details how he thinks of ideas for new games
Insight into the genius dev
Masahiro Sakurai has released another video in his game development series, and this one slots into the ‘Planning and Game Design’ category.
Sakurai has titled this video ‘Deconstruct, Analyze, and Rebuild,’ which he says refers to a method he uses often when thinking up ideas for a new game. Sakurai breaks down the key points, mulls them over, then tries to see if he can’t think of anything better or more innovative.
Sakurai also points out that this is where his daily game research really comes in handy. You never know when playing another game can help foster new ideas for your next project! Even the best art of any medium is inspired by works that came before it.
