    Spirit Blade Video Game Design Document

    Post  PhoenixFire on May 20th 2012, 8:35 pm

    Here's a Design Document I found, I've begun filling it our but it's still very Bare-bones. As we discuss and decide on features I will edit and fill out the Document more. So if you have an idea, question, or suggestion, about any aspect or all of it, post it. We can then discuss it and come to a decision, and then I will add it to the Doc. (No special "post format" is required, just mention what aspect of the game the idea/question/comment is for, so everybody's on the same page). Very Happy

    Anyway, without Further Ado...
