Project Eternity - Post-Funding Update #67

by Couchpotato, 2013-11-13 05:27:32

Obsidian is back with a new Project Eternity post-funding update asking, "What's in a Game?"It's mostly a behind the scenes look at how the game is developed.

What's in a Game?

Update by Brandon Adler, Literal Task Master

 Welcome to my world...

As a producer, one of my jobs is creating and understanding the game's master schedule. It's a never-ending task that requires constant refinement and adjustment. Anything that is added or changed can cause a cascade of unintended consequences which is why as game developers we have a responsibility to vet everything that goes into the game.

Today I'd like to give you a glimpse into how we approach game development from a scheduling perspective and what our typical thought processes are when figuring this stuff out. You will be able to see how each part of our area creation fits into the schedule and why changes and modifications can lead to difficult decisions for the team. Hopefully, it will give a bit more insight into the tough decisions that we make each day when crafting Project Eternity.
