What is a Skill Tree Maker?

A skill tree illustrates video game characters in the hierarchy. A skill tree may branch out, or it may eventually fold back to a single point depending on the video game. In most cases, skill points attributed from a skill tree are used in levelling up the video game characters instead of experience points. Hence, a skill tree maker is vital in understanding, organizing, and visualizing your video game character skills.

How to Create a Skill Tree Maker?

  • Identify the need to create a skill tree - Understand and identify your need to create a skill tree. For example, to monetize the skills and other attributes that are available for the characters in your video game product.
  • Understand the depth of the skill tree - Understand how long a video game character needs to progress in the game play to achieve certain milestones and the relevant skills offered after the successful completion of each milestone.
  • Gather information - Prepare a journey map on how your video game character progresses throughout the game and each milestone that needs to be unlocked. Gather information on the effort the video game player is expected to put in to unlock these milestones during game play.
  • Visualize the skill tree - Use Creately’s skill tree templates to visually represent the video game characters, skill level information, and the skills that are yet to be unlocked. You can then style and add colour themes to make it uniform among the game characters.
  • Share for collaboration among designers and animators - You can invite your colleagues in the design team to reiterate further on your skill tree and start developing and integrating them into your video game. You can also embed the skill tree on presentations and documents or download it as a PDF, image, or SVG.
