6  This is when your project begins to change ▪ For example: you start to make a jumping game, but then it turns into a flying game  They are not bad if you keep it under control  They are bad if let it get out of control  Many factors can cause scope creep ▪ Change of your resources ▪ New team members ▪ Timelines ▪ Unseen obstacles

7  These are Beta Testers, or Game Testers  Have random people, teachers, students test your game  Have them look for glitches or what they like and don’t like  Side Note: these are the lowest paying jobs in the video game industry

8  Don’t make your game too hard ▪ Start the game off easy, and then start making it harder  Try to add some depth to your game ▪ The longer they play your game the better the score, and the less time they will have to play other games  If you can’t draw very well, use some pictures from the internet or get someone on your team who can draw  You can use photos and microphones  Try to keep your project file size less than 10MB

9  Everyone back up the project to their H-drive, USB Flash Memory, Google Drop Box  Make sure everyone is working on the project and has a job. ▪ If not, that person will be removed from the team and form their own team  Get other ideas from other games, but don’t just copy the game ▪ This will disqualify your project  Come in to tutoring and I will be able to help you more.
