Continuing on with the theme of Planning, here is the first of the actual Game Design Documents which I’m sharing with you. I should point out that I wasn’t involved in this project at all and am just sharing the GDD to demonstrate what a GDD actually looks like.
I wonder how many of you out there have heard of a game called “Race and Chase” by DMA Designs?
I’ll give you a clue, that it’s not the title the game was published with, and in the years since it’s release, the Studio have also become known by a different name.
Here’s the GDD for “Race and Chase” anyway. Have a look through and see if you can work out what the game was called on release 🙂

For those of you who haven’t guessed yet here is a behind the scenes video from DMA Designs, giving a tour of the studio as well as talking about the game!
Did you guess from the GDD? That’s right, Race and Chase went on to become the very first GTA game!
