It sure looks like it when we look outside our windows. The sun is shining and today we had a great lunch outdoors. And when the weather is hot, we eat a refreshing ice cream or two.
|Summertime = ice cream time!|
But how's the game development life at Xform headquarters during the summer months?
Well, in fact the same as every other month of the year: we're still very busy creating cool new games!
Allthough some people will leave the office for one are more weeks to enjoy their well deserved holiday, it doesn't mean that there's no development at all during these weeks.
|Summertime = game development time!|
As you may know Xform is a small game company. There are no big sub teams. Our artists and programmers need to work together real close to get their game up and running.
So how do we manage to continue our game development when, for example, programmer A is on holiday? You would say that programmer B could take care of his work, but this simply isn't possible, because this programmer B has its own project and tasks to work on.
This means we need to schedule our tasks more efficiently. We schedule it in such a way that there is always enough to do and we don't have to wait until someone is back. For a programmer this means he need to make all elements tweakable before he leaves. In that case the artist can try out and see how his new character or car looks in game.
And when this artist goes on holiday he leaves behind enough (mockup) art for the programmer to implement. Even if the art isn't final yet, the programmer can still make it functional.
So, enough talking about us working really hard. What do we have to offer for you in the near future?
- A car game with lots of explosions
- A racing game with lots of cars
- A car game with lots of destruction
- A sniper game without cars, but with lots of destruction
As you can see there are some really nice 3D games on their way to enter your web browser! :)
