Hiring a producer might be tough, especially for small teams who have a tight budget. It might be that you’ll have to wear several different hats as an indie developer. But how do you become a good producer? What does the role even entail? What even is game production?
Reuben, our studios’ director, is both a programmer and producer in our small team. Recently, he decided to share his own experience, advice and tangible actions you can take with your team. Production 101 was first covered in an online Discord event (come join our community!), then in greater depth during GCAP 2022! Besides the talk, Reuben’s written an e-book version of the contents, filled with everything from standups to forecasting.
