What we do
The discovery phase of the video game design process is a critical and high-value step in understanding the goals, target audience, and budget for the project. At CerebralFix, we take a collaborative approach to discovery, working closely with our clients to gain a deep understanding of their needs and vision for the game. We will conduct market research, identify industry trends and competitors, and engage with you to understand your goals and objectives for the game. We work to uncover the vision for your project and ensure that we're aligned with your expectations and desired outcomes.
We work with you to understand your goals, target audience, and budget to develop a concept that meets your objectives. Based on your goals and vision, we will work with you to generate ideas for the game concept, including the setting, story, characters, mechanics, and gameplay. The team may also consider different art styles, music, and sound effects. Once the basic concept is established, we then begin working on concept art and storyboards to visualise the game's look and feel. This may include character designs, environment designs, and other visual elements, as well as an outline for the game's narrative, including cutscenes and dialogue. This helps to ensure that the story is cohesive and fits with the game's mechanics and gameplay.
We design and refine the game mechanics to create a compelling and balanced gameplay experience that keeps players engaged and challenged. The team takes the concept design and begins to brainstorm ideas for the game's mechanics, gameplay, story, and characters. They also consider the game's target audience and platform. This is often the stage where we will begin prototyping simple versions of the game's core mechanics to test the gameplay and identify any problems or areas that need improvement. Based on feedback from the prototype, the team iterates on the game's design, making changes to the mechanics, gameplay, story, and characters as needed. This process may involve multiple iterations and testing cycles.
The level design team works with the game design team to establish the overall goals for the game's levels. This includes determining the difficulty curve, pacing, and balance of the levels. They also consider the game's mechanics and how they can be used in each level. Much like the mechanics, the team will create prototypes of the levels to test their ideas. Level design often begins with simple blockout versions of each level, followed by the addition of more detailed assets, such as textures, props, and lighting to create a more immersive and polished environment. The level is extensively playtested by the team and other testers to identify any issues with pacing, difficulty, or mechanics. Based on feedback, the team makes adjustments to the level design as needed.
Seeing is believing - here artists and designers create visual assets that bring your game to life, including characters, environments, animations, and special effects. From the game's concept design, the art team begins to create the more detailed art assest that will establish the overall visual style and tone of the game. This includes the textures, lighting, effects and the user interface. Overall, the visual design process is a critical part of video game development, as it helps to create an immersive and engaging experience for the player. It involves a balance of creativity and technical skills, as well as extensive playtesting and iteration to ensure that the game's visuals are effective and visually appealing.
