Fierce Fun is the game studio creating Condition 24. We are an Irish games development team based in Dublin, Ireland. Right now, thanks to the coronavirus, we are in lock-down like everyone else. A good time to start making a new video game? Yeah, it kinda is as there is not much else to do this summer - with all our cafes, shops, restaurants and pubs (more important of all!) closed. When you are starting out designing a new game, you really need to focus. One the initial game design is locked down, you can move into level production and your schedule becomes more regular and predictable. However, during the early design phase, you really need to concentrate on establishing the core game mechanics. It is tempting to start build out your game without these locked down. From our experience, your game will never get done if you are constantly changing the core mechanics.
