Game Design Forums

Forums are a place for you to find resources, have your questions answered, network with people in the industry and more.

There are many game design forums which you can find in the internet. A lot forums are more specific to each individual area of game design but there is also forums which have most of the game design areas covered. Each forum has it’s own advantages so taking a look at many different forums can be beneficial.

A benefit from forums that are dedicated to a certain software program which you’re using is that in case you run into a problem during the development of your game, you might find the answer to that problem in the forums. Even if you don’t find the answer, you may create your own thread and get the answers you need.
