Hey, LD newbie here.
I think one of the most important aspects of game design is to have people test the game. It’s an iterative process; if you don’t know what other people think of the game, then you’re simply making it for yourself. If we go around asking friends or random people to give our games a try, does it count as not working solo anymore? If so, then this thing is going to be way more challenging than I previously thought
