Well, lets face it. Writing a design document is difficult, and very time consuming. On the projects that I've worked on, I've used this PDF made by the kind guys at CONJURE, (which I believe is the best one available, at least freely, to the community).

Great stuff squiggers, thanks for the template. (it's so difficult to find accessible information on game design documents)

I think this template may be larger than needed for smaller, meaning most indie projects. Although I prefer using my custom document (workin on first indie title, so what can I say?!) as it simply fits to the project (a template can't do that), this has all the little details requested for a design document you can find spread all over the web, and saves tons of time searching all these things.

To come to a point: Great work!! :)

Well, I had uploaded a shorter version (termed the Game Concept Document) that is a greatly reduced version of this.

For some reason its not been authorised however, as it might be better for smaller groups, or when you just need a brief explanation and don't have 2 weeks to sit down and type out that monster document. :P

I'll try and get the other document authorised, its a bit of a pain in the backside it not being authorised.

s/SHEAR/SHEER/ -- wrong word there.
