I want to make some small casual games, but for the life of me, I can't come up with any. If you ask me for a big kind of game, I could offer a few different ideas, but I know that starting out with a big project would be stupid, and I really just want to make a small game and feel the satisfaction of having it done within a couple of weeks.
I want to work on something, anything, but something that's also important for me is working on my own. I don't yet want to join any team or anything like that.
Anyway, the question is. How do you come up with a game? What's your process? Are there any books or anything that could help me on designing a game?
Thanks in advance.
