As a team, we have decided to meet at least once a week apart from our usual class meeting dates. Wednesday mornings seem to be the most preferred date amongst the group and work the most with everyone’s schedule. Our biggest challenge so far is trying to schedule a meeting with everyone being available to show up to the meeting as we think it's crucial for all members of the group to be present. Although we’ve had occasions of split group meetings, we would fill each other in later in the chat on what we talked about and if everyone agrees or disagrees. We are going to attempt to make Wednesday meetings weekly at 12 noon, for at least an hour, going for as long as needed. We will make sure all are notified during the Tuesday class.
So far, we have spent our time as a group working on puzzle concept ideas and documents for class. We still want to work on our guidelines such as the Work Breakdown Schedule and develop our game mechanics to fully commit to designs and prototypes, hence we haven’t started that aspect just yet. Once we get that document complete, we will begin prototyping.
I like to write my current tasks down on a list and order them in importance from what should be done first to last. That helps me stay productive and get my work done. I prefer to complete tasks one at a time as I find doing multiple isn’t as effective for impending deadlines that are fast approaching.
