So I just got out of the N+ postmortem, they gave a brief business overview of the project, breaking down the budget into a nice pie chart (mmmm pie) and going over how they established partnerships with other studios for outsourcing and working with MS on the XBLA contract stuff. Then the guy who headed up the programming side of things gave a month-by-month breakdown of the development process, detailing the major things they went through each month, like initial UI design, outsourcing, build machines, MS certification, bug-fixing, ESRB submission, etc. At the end of each month he also gave a recommendation based what went on that month that could have been done better, like preparing more in advance for the certification process and not booking a vacation in advance for after
Now I'm heading out to lunch across the street at the Metreon - my girlfriend came out with me for a few days to see the city so we're catching a bite together since I have party after party after party to attend tonight.
After I come back I should have some time to get up that video coverage...
