Hello!

Planning plays a major role in the development of a video game. Currently I am developing a video game with RPG Maker MV. I used the software DramaQueen, for the script and my ideas, but I'm looking for a script or management software, which can be used especially for game development. It is important to me that I can write my ideas, the script, but also locations and objects.

Unfortunately Google couldn't help me, so I ask you! Do you know a good game management software?

I haven't really used any of them, but I got articy: draft from a bundle a while ago and it was designed specially for games (it is on steam too). I think they are on their 3rd installment now and it is a paid program, but if you want to look it up:

Link (perhaps if you don't want to invest much money you can find the older versions for a lower price)

And as an open source there is Twine. It is not focused on games particulary but it is mean for non linear stories, so perhaps you might find it useful:

Link to Twine.

Thank you very much! I think I will use articy:draft.

Trello is a good tool for management. So is Asana and Backlog.
Thank you! But in my opinion Trello isn't exactly that what I am looking for.

Probably because this primarily refers to script idea prototyping more than actual management of the development process. Slightly misleading in the initially-ascribed intent or so it says to me. But in the event you should require anything on the project management side, then Trello would be highly recommended for that.

If what you're looking for is a full management suite dedicated for game development, take a look at Hack n Plan. You'll have from task and time management to full game design documentation tools in there.

 …I think I might need to switch from standard ATK/DEF up/down buffs to parameter altering states. I just had an actor whose usual attack against an enemy does ~25 do a buffed attack against a debuffed enemy for ~600…
just saw that titan quest is free on steam until the 23rd
Zombie status is now complete. I didn't have to do much in the way of changing how healing is applied to undead targets, was just a simple 3 line code. I thought I had to overhaul Game_Action lol. Everything else was doable by events. So.. Zombie: You turn undead. Your element changes to darkness. You're weak to light, you're strong to physical attacks and healing hurts you and revival items will kill you.
My Overworld might be a mix of inspiration from 2D Final Fantasy games, Breath of Fire, Battlechasers: Nightwar, Super Mario World, and Pillars of Eternity. If I can make it more in-depth than just walking from point A to point B, that might do a lot for the gameplay experience. Hmm...
