Are you keen to know the latest trends in video game design? Video Gaming is witnessing top trends in the game design. Here is the list of the top trends. Have a look!
- “Feeling First” Design: It starts with the emotions that the developers want players to feel. They design the mechanics along with the gameplay and story. It is a bit of a flip on the conventional approach to game creation. Funomena is the guide on this “Feel Engineering.” It is all about creating unique, moving emotional responses in players.
- Streaming: It was never this much easier to search the ways in which community gaming can be further integrated into the gaming experience. Streaming has made it accessible for everyone
- The Rise of Indie Studios: All kinds of developer platforms like Twine are available for aspiring designers to get their hands on. This software access, as well as extraordinary low barriers to entry, has meant a renowned indie game flood in the market. It does not only mean that more indie games will be done in front of people, but it also means it is harder to get your indie game in front of people. They’re overwhelmed with games!
- The Hype: Are shorter hype cycles, including in the future of games? What eager gamers theorized about the game took many expectations very far away from what the developers agreed. With the small team size, generating hype for a cool concept supports with funding and good sales. Are alleviating expectations with shorter hype cycles the trend of the future for bigger publishers and developers?
- Mobile Gaming: Trends also show that the top mobile games have remained on the top. Also, the new games haven’t been able to unseat the authorities. It is easier than ever to design games for many different platforms, but it is getting harder to reach enthusiastic gamers.
- Incremental Console Upgrades: This is an external game design trend, but a much expected one. The old cycle of consoles seems to be dead. Many companies are making consoles which have slight hardware upgrades and a sleeker body. This means there is a chance for some serious hardware upgrades.
- Inclusivity: This year has appeared like a boiling pot with an enormous amount of overdue spillover. Video games are an invaluable way to reach audiences of all kinds, especially young people. Featuring diversity and inclusive in games exposes everyone to the beauty of being different. Diversity could become more common in video games as sectors of all entertainment industries crawl towards equality.
- Virtual Reality: This year saw virtual reality’s entry with a vengeance. Virtual Reality developing look particularly promising. There’s Gear, which lets you play games like Minecraft in virtual reality. It will be interesting to see how social elements are tied in.
