A collection of doodles, sketches, and scrap-paper designs by game developers around the world!
Game developers love brainstorming: they use notepads, whiteboards, napkins, Photoshop... anything they can dump ideas onto! They make calculations, lay out interfaces, doodle character designs, and collect their thoughts. Unfortunately, these glorious scraps almost always get thrown away, and rarely get looked at again. This is a creative museum where I collect and share the best of these scraps, to both preserve them and let them inspire others.

“A 2D platformer where you control a Demon and an Angel. You switch between them to take advantage of their unique abilities.”
Submitted by Arturo Nereu.
“This is a brainstorming page for a class project. We’re exploring light-based mechanics and environmental motifs for a puzzle or action based platformer.”

“A puzzle platformer featuring three different voodoo dolls. They have unique abilities, and they can be pierced with needles granting them even more abilities - like the umbrella needle in the sketch. It allows them to soar down safely. Combine their skills and make them cooperate to solve the levels.”

Thanks to everyone who follows Gamestorm, I’m now at 30000 subscribers which is pretty awesome! Also, I’ve seen some of the best game design sketches ever.
I thought I’d use this opportunity to pimp a new project I’ve started, based on this year-old design sketch, called Pig Flip! I’ve actually started a devlog (blog where I post development news, screenshots, sketches, and answer questions) for the game, so check it out!
Watch a game go from rough prototype to polished completion!
