Production Schedules

In this episode, we discuss the life of a game, particularly with a crowd-funded game. We go through the schedule from start to finish and a high-level of everything in between! Specifically, we hit on these points:

  • Make sure design is finished
  • The major steps include:
    •     Art
    •     Manufacturing and Proofing
    •     Kickstarter Prep
    •     Review Copies
    •     Informing Retailers
    •     Shipping and Fulfillment
  • Art takes longer than expected
  • Break down EVERY task and element
  • The order of the tasks matters
  • Run aspects by outside eyes
  • Where can we find an in-depth description of the process?
  • What task management tools are available?
  • What is the overall timeline?
