About the developer
I am currently studying Software Engineering at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal. After meeting Thiéry on a summer job, we decided to join our efforts (with the help of Bertrand for the audio) to make an original game from A to Z.
I decided to take ideas from different software development processes to develop our game. We analysed what requirements we had, created a design document, state machines, class diagrams... Everything that could help us have a very good idea of what would be the game, and how we would do it.
After a little more than 2 years, we were almost ready to present the game to the public.
I sincerily hope that other students will be interested in making such projects in their free time. This is a very good way to gain experience in game development.
