Once you have a complete game idea, time to do market research.

Concept
Once the idea is complete, you can advance to connecting. At this point atleast, you should understand who is your target group and your platform. Know you need to design in detail and include your mechanics, goal and objective, and challenge in the game. That is not enough, you also need a long term goal or metagame to keep player's interested. Often people just take the first theme they come up with but they should on it and try lots of different possible features to their game.
At this point you might get into problems, but core-ext-wish is a powerful method to help you through.

Design
