Hi all, just wanted to point you in the direction of our Post-Mortem. We’ve done it a little differently this time, so a quick explanation on that first…

At the end of last year we decided to make a change to how we do post-mortems, as we found that we never did a proper one on-time. We think the main reason was our tendency to always write them as very long dry documents that everybody hated doing, so we decided we were going about it all wrong. We were trying to write something for other people, almost like an article, but in reality there are very few people who actually care smile

So we went back to basics… a post-mortem is designed to help us analyse what went right and wrong with the game, and although it could potentially be interesting to others, its primary purpose is to help us understand how we can get better. Our solution was to do it as an informal chat, through an instant messaging app, and just talk to each other honestly about the game. We’ve done this for the last 3 games and published the results on our blog. It has worked really well for us, it’s easier and more enjoyable to do, and we get some good feedback from each other.

We did one for Star Traveller earlier in the week, so if you’re interested you can check it out HERE
