    PRODUCER IS... A facilitator (and a manager) (sometimes a boss)

    (and definitely should be a cheerleader) • You manage all the tasks • Keep an eye on the features • Have in-depth knowledge of the game itself • You are the connection between all departments in your company • But... You’re not an expert in any discipline.

    SO WHAT’S UP WITH THE PRODUCTION PLAN? „But we don’t

    really need a producer...” Don’t worry, you already have one. But where to start with this monstrosity?

    PRODUCTION PLAN – STARTING OUT Answer the following questions: 

    How much time do we have... (?)  ....before the money runs out.... (?)  ...and we achieve what we wanted with the game? From the points above you can easily see that you have to write down:  Schedule of the game  Budget  Game Features

    to use and understand by you and your team.

    WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? 3. Being able to talk about

    the incoming features/dates with publishers (you don’t want to be one of the guys who says: „We have a lot of work, I’m doing production/design/art at the same time and we will have our game somewhere next year and it’s going to be perfect”).
