Hardspace: Shipbreaker is the first original IP from Vancouver based Blackbird Interactive, receiving much recognition since its PC Early Access launch in June of 2020. Hardspace: Shipbreaker is known for its innovative gameplay and unique premise and has already received a number of awards. But how do you achieve innovative gameplay and a unique premise with a small team and a limited budget? In this post-mortem style talk I will tell you how we created the team culture required to produce and execute great ideas, as well as how we created an environment that promotes a strong balance between creativity and productivity & the cultural/production pillars that made this team successful.
Attendees will learn how to build a truly collaborative and healthy team to create a new IP (or any game), and the cultural/ production pillars required to make your team successful
Anyone at any level can benefit from this presentation, though the talk will be most impactful for those in leadership positions.
