Development of a videogame: roles, management, and flexibility in production.
Using as an example the work done by Untold Games with TerraMars, we will talk about the management of a videogame project for small- and medium-sized structured teams. We will talk about how participating in an international competition influenced the production of the vertical slice of the game, and we will illustrate some tricks and techniques that can be used to optimize and rationalize development costs, including the use of Unreal Engine 4's tools for the automation of testing.
