What is Rosebud, and how can you use it to generate game ideas?

Rosebud is an AI-powered platform where you can create video games, share and play instantly. Simply enter a prompt, and Rosebud will generate the code for you. This means you can prototype, iterate, and publish your creation at high speed.

At Rosebud, we offer three main game types: 3D, 2D, and Voxel. We use Babylon.js for 3D games, Phaser for 2D games, and Noa for Voxel games.

What's fascinating about Rosebud is that it not only writes the code, but it can also be used as a brainstorming partner to generate random game ideas.

Here we tell you how:

1. Get simple game ideas from simple prompts

The most straightforward way to generate ideas is, quite simply, to ask for them.

Rosebud enables you to pull game concepts with just a simple prompt.

For instance, with the prompt "Give me 3 easy-to-make game ideas for 2D”, Rosebud provided three 2D game suggestions using Phaser.js and pre-generated assets.

The ideas included a game where the player needs to keep a bouncing logo from falling off the screen, and two games with the same mechanic of dodging obstacles, but with different characters and settings.

2. Generate ideas from your own game assets

If you already have a theme in mind or a specific visual style you'd like for your game, you can utilize our game asset generator to craft the initial elements and then use them as references to get a new idea for objectives and mechanics.

In this case, I requested it to generate a "Science lab," a "scientist” in Pixel Art, and a "green potion” also in Pixel Art.

Afterward, I went to the chat and asked for ideas using these assets: "Give me 3 game ideas using the assets 'science lab', 'scientist', and 'green potion'".

Following this input, Rosebud created three imaginative game ideas: navigate a lab in "Elixir Quest", escape threats in "Lab Escape", and solve a potion theft in "Mystery Of The Green Potion".

3. Start from a game that already exists

Want to test your development skills with an idea that already works, but by giving it a new twist?

You can achieve this by simply mentioning the game in a prompt, and Rosebud will understand.

Here we began with Angry Birds, and the platform gave us very interesting suggestions based on our asset list: from power-ups and bonuses to a much more ambitious multiplayer mode.

4. Start from a game genre

Perhaps you don’t have a theme or aesthetic, but you do have a game genre you want to explore.

In this case, I asked for a simple platformer game and Rosebud wrote these three ideas. Right away, I asked it to design the mechanics for the first idea, and it began putting all the pieces together:

5. Get specific ideas based on detailed parameters

If you're looking for a more detailed game idea, you can craft a prompt with added context.

I incorporated parameters like genre, setting, primary mechanic, and objective for a comprehensive response. The outcome was an RPG-style game with the goal of collecting magical items.
