New List of Development Tasks

Submitted by Roots on Mon, 11/17/2008 - 00:42

A couple months ago we had a number of discussions about how to improve management on our team. One common complaint was that some people did not know what needed to be done for the next release. The solution we came up with was to have a check list of all tasks that need to be done for each release. This wiki page has been private and viewable only to the team for the past two months. Today, we're making it public and you can check it out here.

Allacrost Demo 1.0.0 Task List
Warning: the contents of this wiki page contain many spoilers for the next release

This page is still not finalized, but most of the tasks for code, artwork, music, sound, story, maps, and game design are all there. The reason we have made this public is to hope that it makes it easier for outsiders to contribute something useful that we need. Many (but not all) of these tasks are already entered on our bug tracker/task manager. This may seem redundant, but its a lot easier to read through a single wiki page to get a general sense of everything that needs to be done than it is to view a large number of tasks on the bug tracker.

So take a look at the page (if you aren't worried about being spoiled for the next release) and if there's something on there that you think you can do, go ahead and tackle it yourself. The more people help out, the sooner the next release will happen. Oh and by the way, we are still very much in need of programmers and managers to join our team. We currently have only three active programmers. That really, really hurts. If we could bring that number up to eight (or higher), it would mean the world to us in the programming department right now. So please lend us a hand if you can afford the time, we need the help especially bad right now. Thanks!
