1. Always Back Up Your Data! I've been a victim of computer crashes. Losing all of my game data wasn't fun. No one wants to start all over again. It's a lot of hard work. When you're finish working on your project for the day make a backup. Put the backup on an external hard drive or flash drive.
2. Keep your purchase records. When you're buying a new game development program always save the receipt. You may have to re-install it on a new computer. You will always have your activation code with no worries.
3. Always test play your games. We all make mistakes. Sometimes we make major mistakes. To avoid potential players complaining about errors always test play your game. Make sure all events are working correctly. Avoid glitches and crashes.
4. Get test players.Again we're not perfect. We may still overlook an error. Ask your friends to test play your games. They may notice errors you missed.
5. Defeat Your Game! You don't want to make a game unbeatable. That's no fun! If you can't beat your own game then you have a BIG problem. You made the game and should know the enemies' strengths and weaknesses. Your game needs a reason degree of difficulty. It will take a while to balance the game's difficulty. Go the database to look for any noticeable errors and design flaws. Once you have defeated the game let your test players try to beat it. If they are able to beat within reasonable difficulty then you're good to go.
