Abstract [en]

This essay is about common problems that can arise during game development projects. It is focused around the production cycle and how the game industry treats the game development pipeline. It mainly describes issues with communication within game development teams, problems concerning planning and how the design process affects members of the game development team’s work process and efficiency. It includes an analysis of common problems that I have found during my studies of literature describing the game industry, a short research study of post mortems written by game developers and a survey about game design documentation and communication sent out to game developers and game design students.  

Abstract [sv]

Den här uppsatsen behandlar vanliga problem som kan uppstå under spelprojekt. Den är fokuserad kring produktionscykeln och hur industrin behandlar produktionscykelns olika delar. Den beskriver framförallt problem rörande kommunikationen inom team som utvecklar spel, problem kopplade till planering av spelprojekt och hur designprocessen påverkar spelutvecklares arbetsprocesser och effektivitet. Den inkluderar en analys av vanliga problem jag har funnit då jag studerat litteratur som beskriver spelindustrin, en kort studie av post mortems skrivna av spelutvecklare och en undersökning om speldesigndokumentation jag skickat ut till spelutvecklare och spelstudenter.
