Alright so I finally got some time to continue writing about my experiences at The Game Assembly.
The first project we worked at in team was our text adventure game which we wrote in the ALAN language. This was my first experience working in a group and to top it off we even had different professions in the group. Sure we are both artisans but two very different kinds. We are programmers and they graphical artists. And the first wall we had to overcome was the clash between us. You could directly notice a difference in personality and workload. It really surprised me, I’ve always viewed myself as lazy, but my first impression was how easy going the artists were. We had strict guidelines to work from 9.00 to 18.00 but most programmers worked way beyond this as we had courses and homework at the same time as we had our project. The artists were the exact opposite and if we wanted something done we had to nag… a lot. It was an interesting experience to say the least.
