Hey All,

I am working on my first real game design that I am determined to see through to the finish (not necessarily published but at least to a print an play stage).

I was looking at the WIP forum and it seems that almost all the games in there are in an advanced stage of completion.

Is it considered bad form to post a thread in there when your project is still in its infancy and not even reached a point to play test with others yet? I wanted to make a thread to document from start to finish as a way to track and show progress as well as hopefully inspire some other new designers to try things out and see the process.

What do you think?

Post away! The WIP threads are great to post ideas and watch a game develop.

Most folks will use the original post to put links to the PnP files.

A number of the WIP threads you may have looked at are related to contests.

I think most use the blog feature until the game is mostly tangible. That way if your game idea dies off for a while its easier to pick up where you left off.
Theres nothing wrong with doing a WIP the way you want its just thats its usually more helpful to do a WIP when you have enough for others to judge and help.
