Reflecting on the BIRDS! Feathers
Barry wrote a fantastic Post-Mortem article on our recent BIRDS! game project for Ludum Dare 31. What is a video game's post-mortem exactly? A project post-mortem is a process, usually performed at the conclusion of a project, to determine and analyze elements of the project that were successful or unsuccessful. Project post-mortems are intended to inform process improvements which mitigate future risks and to promote iterative best practices. Post-mortems are often considered a key component of, and ongoing precursor to, effective risk management. There, I hope that breaks it down, I just copied the context from wikipedia.
