Help/Making an Original Idea Popular
Thinking of an idea[edit source]
Most ideas start with something inspiring. Let's take a new meme inspired by a roblox account. Yes, I made a meme based off of a roblox account called smelly (This is not my world, it's my friend Roboyc12's world). Me and my friend were messing around with account decal, and I said !decal smelly and an abomination popped up. I then used it for stuff in games but my friend said he needs an official game. Of course, your idea might be a fighting game of some sort. Something else like making account memes is how I do it, but you probably are thinking of something else, and thats good, always keep it original!
Do this on a piece of paper (or in your head) and write a story (Or plan the map and characters blah blah blah) if you feel like its not original and if you don't wanna do it then take another paper and scrap it! Like my game, I just planned it in my head.
Don't be lazy and make low detail stuff and don't make the space too small. Quadrants are always high detail (Also wedges), this process could take months or even years, but remember to not get too lazy with stuff or nothing good can come from the game. Also, don't use blocky characters, they sometimes look weird and they are outdated.
Gaining popularity[edit source]
Making a thumbnail is a good way to get popularity for your game either having a friend do it or doing it yourself. Thumbnails can get the game attracted and, who knows, it could even get featured. Another way to gain popularity is by adding updates to the game. Everyone loves updates! (another way is to do a admin giveaway, but thats bad idea). And that's all, folks!
In order to make it original, I would recommend that you make sure the game isn't the same as a different game!
You can do a trend but in a different way by adding a few differences!
It does not have to be too original, but make it as original as you want!
If you are a PC player you can make a thumbnail in google paint or use snipping tool and use the paint app. This is best for PC users who just have basic apps.
For mobile people, make thumbnails on websites.
