About The Project:
Dramatic chipmunk is a game based on a popular 5 seconds video and is targeting the 35 million people who has viewed the video. We started this project with a main focus; to develop a single mechanic game and publish it on one platform (iPad) and as the game is being developed for other platforms (iPhone, Facebook) we will research and develop the game mechanics and add more features to engage the players even more. So far we have the game for iPad and iphone. We are in process of development of the Facebook version on a local server.
My primary role on the team is project management. My main purpose is to achieve team-driven, collaborative success. I am responsible to develop the schedule to keep the project in scope and team members on task. A major part of my job is cultivating team culture and facilitating communication between the art team and tech team and our game designer. Since we have two part time team members who will collaborate with the team from a different location on some days, I am using PM tools such as Jira to facilitate communications and keeping everyone in the same page. In order to keep the projects vision, I would need to be able to anticipate and mitigate problems before they happen. Therefore analysing the directions that our project could take and anticipating the complications and solutions for each is also part of my work process.
