Description de l'ouvrage

Deliver Better Games Faster, On Budget—And Make Game Development Fun Again!

 

Game development is in crisis—facing bloated budgets, impossible schedules, unmanageable complexity, and death march overtime. It’s no wonder so many development studios are struggling to survive. Fortunately, there is a solution. Scrum and Agile methods are already revolutionizing development outside the game industry. Now, long-time game developer Clinton Keith shows exactly how to successfully apply these methods to the unique challenges of game development. 


Keith has spent more than fifteen years developing games, seven of them with Scrum and agile methods. Drawing on this unparalleled expertise, he shows how teams can use Scrum to deliver games more efficiently, rapidly, and cost-effectively; craft games that offer more entertainment value; and make life more fulfilling for development teams at the same time.


You’ll learn to form successful agile teams that incorporate programmers, producers, artists, testers, and designers—and promote effective collaboration within and beyond those teams, throughout the entire process. From long-range planning to progress tracking and continuous integration, Keith offers dozens of tips, tricks, and solutions—all based firmly in reality and hard-won experience.


Coverage includes

  • Understanding Scrum’s goals, roles, and practices in the context of game development
  • Communicating and planning your game’s vision, features, and progress
  • Using iterative techniques to put your game into a playable state every two to four weeks— even daily
  • Helping all team participants succeed in their roles
  • Restoring stability and predictability to the development process
  • Managing ambiguous requirements in a fluid marketplace
  • Scaling Scrum to large, geographically distributed development teams
  • Getting started: overcoming inertia and integrating Scrum into your studio’s current processes

Increasingly, game developers and managers are recognizing that things can’t go on the way they have in the past. Game development organizations need a far better way to work. Agile Game Development with Scrum gives them that—and brings the profitability, creativity, and fun back to game development.

Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“ If you’ve ever felt that gaps exist between ‘traditional’ software development using Scrum and video game development using Scrum, this book is for you. Clinton effectively bridges those gaps by covering the adjustments necessary for disciplines, individual roles, and processes and project phases unique to game development, thoroughly supporting it with explicit examples and practical advice. Simply put, a must-read for game developers that are currently using or plan to implement Scrum or other agile processes within their company.”

—Jeff Lindsey, Producer, Longtail Studios

 

“ I wish Clinton Keith could go back and write this book 15 years ago—it would have helped me see things a lot differently. Agile Game Development with SCRUM is a one stop shop for game teams interested in using scrum techniques.”

—CJ Connoy, Game Producer, Treyarch

 

“ By the time you wake up and realize that you really need this book, your project will probably be too far gone. Dive into agile before it’s too late and let Clinton be your guide. Tested under the fires of true game production, everyone involved in game development will gain from reading Clinton’s wisdom.”

—Jason Della Rocca, Founder, Perimeter Partners, and former Executive Director of the International Game Developers Association

 

“ Clinton Keith has written an excellent book for both practitioners and students. He combines an in-depth analysis of the challenges of large scale game development with hands-on advice on the use of Scrum. His often funny anecdotes illustrate that this guy has really experienced the heat of large computer games projects.”

—Bendik Bygstad, Professor of Information Systems, The Norwegian School of IT

 

“ Clinton Keith combines his experience as both video game developer and agile practitioner to apply Scrum philosophy to the unique challenges of video game development. Clint clearly explains the philosophy behind Scrum, going beyond theory and sharing his experiences and stories about its successful application at living, breathing development studios.”

—Erik Theisz, Senior Producer, 38 Studios

 

“ Clinton has combined his extensive game and software development experiences with agile methodologies. The result is a thoughtful, clear, and, most importantly, realistic application of agile to game development.”

—Senta Jakobsen, Senior Development Director, DICE

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent book describing the perfect pairing of game development with Scrum 4 juin 2010
Par Michael Cohn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Scrum and game development go together as well as chocolate and peanut butter. In this book, Clinton Keith does a perfect job of showing how to put them together.

The book is split into five parts. The first part describes the crisis facing game development because of the explosion in complexity and game size. Not wanting to end on a down note, Part 1 also describes how agile/Scrum address these problems. Part 2 is probably the best overall introduction to Scrum anywhere. I now even recommend this Part (100 pages) to my non-game development clients. Part 3 goes deeper into many of the specific challenges facing game projects--planning, creating cross-functional teams from such a variety of disciplines, and reducing the overhead of iterating. Part 4 dives deeper into the specific disciplines and offers great advice in the areas of art, audio, design, qa, and production. The concluding part contains 3 chapters describing some of the challenges you'll face, how to work with a publisher, and how to start.

This is a great book that is chock-full of stories from author Clinton Keith's fifteen years in the game industry. The writing is crisp and conversational with topics covered in just the right amount of detail. The hand-drawn look of the illustrations match the book perfectly.

Agile Game Development with Scrum should be required reading for anyone on a game project. And it offers a great deal to anyone starting out with Scrum.

From my limited experience with both Agile and game development in General, this book provided an excellent entry point on the road to becoming an Agile developer.

I enjoyed the anecdotal "experience" sections the most. Being able to read about real life scenarios within a studio, and how Agile was applied, was educational and supplied a huge amount of context.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you're in game development, this is a must-buy. 29 avril 2012
Par Mitch Lacey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Back in the '90s, I worked at a variety of game studios - Accolade and SSI in the Bay Area and GTE Entertainment in San Diego. In each of these companies, I noticed a trend - the struggle with the development cycle. Each company took a traditional approach to development. I remember conversations we would have on "how nice it would be to get the alpha's and beta's out early" but we rarely did. As I read Clinton Keith's book, I realize now what we were missing.

I really like Chapters 1 & 2, The Crisis Facing Game Development and Agile Development. Keith lays out one of the best cases I've ever read in chapter 1 as to why a traditional model will sink a studio. Then he lays out why and how agile principles and practices can help fix that problem.

What really separates this book from other agile books though, is the video game stuff. Chapter 7, Video Game Project Planning is stellar. It builds on previous chapters and lays out an approach for the die-hard waterfall studio to get into agile practices. Next is Chapter 15, Working with a Publisher. Anyone who has been in this industry knows what a challenge this can be, especially when it comes to planning! Keith includes some other content on things that you may find in other books, but the game development approach to this title makes it an E ticket ride (do an online search if you don't know what an E ticket is). Definitely a book worth having.

If you find yourself in game development, this is the book for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exactly like it says 16 avril 2012

This book delivers exactly what it says. I was very happy to find a project management book with many examples in the gaming industry, as that is the field I hope to be working in.

Womderful detailed examples and figures to illustrate various agile methods.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Valuable for all software developers 8 avril 2012
Par Nineinchninja - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I've been doing a fair amount of reading on Agile lately, and I can say that this is the best Agile development book I've come across.

In addition to an interesting introduction to Scum and Agile and its history in the gaming industry, the author describes and provides insight into many of the challenges that all Agile implementations face. Most of these lessons can be generalized to industries other than the game industry, such as scaling up to large projects, working with multiple disciplines with differing different cadences, involving QA, and selling Agile to executives. He also provides a realistic appraisal of Agile and Scrum, describing its pros and cons, rather than presenting Scrum as a silver bullet as many texts on the subject do.

I found this book clearly demonstrated how the principles of Agile are put into practice, with real experiences and sound advice. While I'm not a game developer myself it has helped me understand Scrum and Agile in general, and I recommend it to coworkers also working in IT.
