At the beginning of June, we were put into a team of 7 programmers, 3 marketers, 14 artists and a producer. We were given the brief of creating a mobile spin-off for an upcoming PS4 game Xtreme Drone Racing within a short timescale.
After some intense pre-production, including competitive analysis, consumer research, design documentation and roadmapping we had produced an MVP we were happy with. Over the next 12 weeks, we were in the studio full time to meet our weekly reviews and complete our scheduled tasks. With a lot of dedication, we were able to blast through our MVP in just 2 weeks, allowing us to add plenty of polish and add in stretch features, such as in-depth customisation, a shop system and a geotagging feature to unlock special levels based on location.
It was a tough production timescale, but we were able to pull it off just in time for our showcase event, organised by the marketers which featured both ours and the PS4 game, with talks from industry reps from companies such as Rare and Sony London, as well as live drone racing.
This was a great promotional event for us, as not only were able to show off one our projects to industry, but we also received press coverage. Of course, the greatest gift of all was the awesome product we had all worked hard to create.
As soon as the game is available for download, the iOS and Android links will be posted here.
