When learning basic game development, it is important to plan the project. It is easy to get confused and start over again. Choosing a theme is crucial, as it helps the developer stay focused. It should be a compelling idea that can be expressed in just a few words. This gives life to the game’s concept and makes the game much more enjoyable. Games such as Wolfenstein 3D and the Legend of Zelda use strong themes to encourage exploration and survival against the elements.
