Making games isn't a one person show. It's a team of driven creatives working together, where every creative input shapes the outcome. One of the biggest challenges for studios as they mature is keeping up the spirit of letting everyone express their creativity and bring in their ideas, while still tackling larger and more ambitious projects.

For ten years, Blindflug Studios have been working on finding that balance across projects between four and seven digit budgets. This talk talks about their team wide internal idea development process and how these ideas then are turned into projects that deliver on time with Swiss precision. So that everyone can have a plan on keeping development driven and fun for year, no matter how big the studio will become.


After the talk the attendees learned a way of fostering inclusion into the creative idea generation across their studio as well as how to turn game design ideas into planable and testable chunks for development sprints, without hindering agency from your team members.

Intended Audience

This talk is aimed at young directors, producers and game designers, who have not fully established their team workflow yet and might be tasked with bigger Indie or AA projects in the future.
