Pinball code mind map / Flowchart


#1

Has anybody made any mind map style pictures of games?
I am thinking similar to the ones Keith made for WOZ and TH.


#2

I see now that it is also called flowchart.
Se attached pictures from WOZ.


#3

FYI, I didn’t make these per se, our artist JP did. One also exists for Hobbit, I forget if I’ve seen one for DI, and we already have one for game #4. :wink:


#4

The fist time i saw them was for WOZ, and then TH, and i thought they were great!
It makes the game so much easier to grasp, and to see the goals.
Did you lay out the code in a map like that, or did JP come up with this on his own?

Please send med the flowchart to game #4 and i willz spell sheck itz four yuu. :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

Hi there,

came across this thread browsing the web. First time on Tilt-forums.

I’m the one who started creating these flowcharts during WOZ. Mainly for myself to visualise Keith’s (intimidating :wink: written out documents and help me understand the rules better. It also helps me laying out the UI’s I create for our games, so a basic chart is created quite early in the design process.

Great to see these help other people as well.

Hi Jean-Paul, thank you for chiming in. The flow charts makes the games so much easier to grasp, and they look beautiful!

keep up the great work.
