6. Starting and Managing a ProjectΒΆ

How is a video game developed?

AAA games involve dozens of people working for years - no project of that scale successfully gets built by people just sitting down and winging it. The three major activities of developing a game: design, implementation and testing, must be organized and coordinated between all the participants. But even small scale indie games need to think about how they organize these basic activities How much design should you do before you start to code? When should you test your game?

This level explores strategies that will help you successfully start a game project and quickly refine your ideas.
