Hi everybody!
 
I've been working on an exciting new project with a team of five producers from the IGDA Production SIG and an advisor from the Wharton School of Business. We've built a unique study which is, as far as I can tell, the first and most comprehensive study of its kind in the game industry.
 
If you've ever shipped a game with a team of 3 or more developers, then we need your help!  Please help us out by taking the survey here: >> https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FDGPLL5 <<
 
We're trying to get 1000 responses, so please help spread the word to everyone you know in game development!
 
Here's the official announcement:
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
The Game Outcomes Project
 
is a first-of-its-kind experiment to statistically evaluate game development efforts across hundreds of game teams and glean insights as to how teamwork, culture, leadership, and production practices contribute to the success or failure of game development projects. 
 
Currently, there’s little or no actual data on the effectiveness of different production methodologies, crunch/overtime, or team size impact the success or failure of projects in the game industry.
 
We hope to change that!
 
With your help, we hope to gain insights at to what factors produce the greatest risks in game development and what best practices development teams can follow to better manage the risks they face.
 
If you’re a game developer with at least one team project under your belt, please help us move the game industry forward by taking a brief survey about your last team project in the industry.
 
This study was designed by an independent team of game developers, including several from the Production SIG of the International Game Developers' Association (IGDA) and an advisor from the Wharton School of Business. The Game Outcomes Project is not affiliated with the annual IGDA Developer Satisfaction Survey or any other survey or organization.
