wildcard : running gag, environmental hasard, weak point, silent protagonist, quiet day, cozy, sense of urgency, several endings, short play session, tea/coffee available, ALL the money

I'll make other ones, by the way, can you tell me which font and settings you used, so that mine don't stick out too much?


Thank you so much for your comment, I'm so happy that you're enjoying these! I've just updated the upload to include the .psd file that I used, so I hope this helps you to create your own! The font used is called 'Bahnschrift' if  you need to download it.

Thanks once again, have a great day! :)


Thanks. I already have that, guess it comes with Photoshop ^^


What a neat idea!  I've been trying to get my nephew and me to sit down for a week and try to make a game (basing our options on the engines I have available, the assets I have available, and the list of easiest game genres from Extra Credits' "Minimum Viable Product" video), but now the idea of doing it with some random mechanics intrigues me.  I could see having the stages of game development come at us randomly: "Today we (draw) record sound effects!" (without knowing what exactly we're recording them for, aside from the general genre)  "Today we (draw) create background graphics!"  "Today we (draw) develop a basic physics engine!"  "Today we (draw) choose a color scheme!" lol


Aahh that's so sweet! I really hope these cards are able to help you guys at all with your creative sessions, if there's anything you think I should add or change please let me know! :D

Have fun with your game making, and have a great day too!! 


Great idea but it would be nice to have empty versions of the cards to create your own prompts as there just aren't enough of them.


I've just updated the folder with a blank cards section, thank you so much for your feedback! :)


Found this through the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, super cool idea and beautiful execution! Just a quick note, "cel-shaded" should be spelled with one L, not two. Figured you might want to know.


Thank you so much for letting me know! I'll get this updated ASAP :) 


Thamk for these, they look fun, sorry for not buying I have no money, I will buy you a cola someday


No need for donations! I'm just glad that people are enjoying them ^^
