In this GDC 2018 session, game developers Brandon Sheffield, Audrey Moon and Dan Boutros chronicle the ups and downs of the development of their vastly different games to help developers better understand the game development process.
One dev represents a more personal artistic approach, while the other worked with the Spider-Man license. The last discusses an update to an existing game, many years later.
As games scale up in team size, development gets more complex, and this talk shows a wide variety of game dev pitfalls and boons for to keep in mind.
It's an insightful talk that's definitely worth watching, so developers shouldn't miss the opportunity to do so now that it's freely available on the official GDC YouTube channel!
