Anyone dabble in game design?

    As I'm mostly a developer, I've done a fair shair of game jams, scoring quite high at some previous Bacon Game Jams, came 3rd and 2nd. I'm also taking a subject on Game Design this spring at my university, and we have been designing a mobile game, which we think has quite some potential. It is not done yet, and I'm not sure what we are doing with it, we have applied to some competitions, but to shortly explain it, it's like geocaching for the every man.

    What I have found to be most important in my dabbling in game design, is to always think minimalistic. A game gets really complex fast, even though you are trying to keep it to the point. If you are striving to achieve minimalism, your battle against complexity is clearer. And even a game like Flappy Birds can earn $50 000 a day ;)
