Game tutorial tutorials?

Posted 02 June 2014 - 11:47 PM

So... I've run across a small issue in my game development. and that issue is the fact that I haven't even the slighest idea how to write a tutorial for a game. I understand that it would be different for each game, but I feel like there should be a general base line on where to start, and--let me tell you something--I'm absolutely HORRIBLE at writing things that people would understand.

So, are there are good Tutorial Tutorials? or anybody got any good advice regarding writing one?

Think about what you want to teach. Then you focus on how you go about that task.

If you are wondering how to write the tutorial, you may be thinking to broadly. Narrow the topic to a single item, like a chapter in a book.


Any help?

Agreed. Go for specific concepts unless you are going broader for an expose on a genre. What are the big issues with folks in a game? Collision boxes, object rendering, game state management, etc. I mean if your game is small enough to illustrate multiple points at once that's fine.. else break it into multiple tutorials covering multiple areas.
