  • 15. Tips Emphasize meaningful game play (or fun) over polish  Focus on one concept  Make game play fun in the first 15 seconds  Include simple instructions in the title screen then move quickly into game play, or integrate a quick in-game tutorial rather than starting out with a long back story  Use audio to create mood and for efficient and effective in-game feed back
