Chapter 6. Ideal Workflow

Chapter 6. Ideal Workflow

Workflow is a subject that's difficult to read about without falling asleep. To avoid this effect as much as possible, let's take a look at the big picture. I consider it my “under pain of death” responsibility to give industry veterans and newcomers alike a good sketch using broad strokes before delving into technical details. The first point to remember is that game industry veterans are still babies compared with veterans of other industries, and a lot of the mistakes being made by the “old hands” are the ones folks in other industries made ages ago.

In terms of process or workflow, the electronic game industry has evolved in much the same way that many other industries have, and it can be most closely associated with other aesthetic entertainment industries such as film and television. Strictly defined, as explained in Chapter 2, workflow is the way actions are combined over a period of time to achieve a desired result.
