CEO of Fishing Cactus (http://www.fishingcactus.com). I'll update this blog with recent news and thoughts about game design, game programming, management(SCRUM) inside Fishing Cactus but also with other game related news.

Well usually extra budget with an already setup art direction can be very messy and lead to a lot of redo. I think our article shows how to avoid that redo at least to some extend .
