“How Games are Made: Defense Grid 2”: Polygon will be following a game’s development for a full year


Part 1 of Polygon’s “How Games are Made: Defense Grid 2”

Game development has traditionally been a pretty secretive process, at least from what I can tell, so recent moves towards more open development such as Doublefine Adventure and the increasing number of development blogs have been a lot of fun to see.

Polygon is throwing its hat in the ring with a year-long series straightforwardly titled “How Games are Made: Defense Grid 2”, in which they’ll be documenting the final year (or so) of Hidden Path’s next game. Only the first article is out now, but I’m looking forward to seeing how it develops over the next year, and hopefully it will provide some valuable insight into typical game development (if there is such a thing) to newcomers.
