Free Game Design Document (GDD) Template


What’s up people of the internet? My name’s
Garrett Mickley, I’m a game designer, but sometimes I make YouTube videos and in this
YouTube video I want to show you the GDD template (that’s Game Design Document template) that
I use when I’m making my game designs. So, I’m going to make another video where I talk
more about how to write a really good GDD, how to fill this out, and everything like
that. That’s going to be in a totally different video; I’ll link it in the description, but
right now what I want to show you is just the template its self real quick. So we start
off with the first page. We’ve got Game Name and we’ve got space for team members. You
scroll down to the second page, type your elevator pitch. Drop your story brief in.
And you’ve got game play features. After that, everything’s broken down by what you need
created.So we’ve got levels if your game is a level style game. Menu screens, which all
need to be created. And then a list of the art assets and where they go. There’s also
a section for sound assets and where they go. So this is a free template that you can
pick up on my website at GarrettMickley.com. I’ll have a link directly to this in the description.
You’re free to use it and share it as much as you want. I don’t mind. So, thanks for
watching and if you’re interested in game design, please subscribe. I’m going to be
posting much more regularly when it comes to game design stuff, as well as my normal
Let’s Plays and game assessments where I play video games and I talk about design and what
I like about them and what I don’t like about them. You can also check out my website, which
is GarrettMickley.com, again, link in the description. There, there’s tons of game design
resources. I even post up my own game ideas, one a week, and you can actually steal those
ideas from me if that is something that appeals to you. If you don’t have any game design
ideas but you want to make games, go ahead and steal one of mine. Some of them are and
some of them are small. Seriously, I can’t say it enough. Thanks for watching. But, here’s
what you need to do now that you’re done watching the video. You need to come and scroll down
a little bit, see you’re watching your video. Scroll down a little bit, click on the subscribe
button. And then after that, I need you to click the thumbs up button. Not the thumbs
down button, that one’s rude. And come down here into the comments, okay? Leave a comment.
Tell me something about yourself, cuz I like to know my followers, my subscribers. I want
to know about you. Also, if you’re interested in game design, or game development, and you
want to make games, go to my website GarrettMickley.com. I’ve got guides, I’ve got game ideas you can
steal those ideas from me. You can take those ideas right from my website and make your
own games out of them if you don’t have any ideas of your own. You can check out some
of my games and play them. And you can do some reading. Whatever you need to do. Go
ahead and check that out. Sign up for my newsletter, it’s down at the bottom, and you’ll get notified
of new posts, new games, all that stuff, along with as many freebies as I can possibly give
you. Thanks again for watching, and I will see you in the next video.
