Due: Saturday, February 5th at 11:59 pm
Your charter is just a text file that provides us with information about your
group, so that we can appropriately follow your progress. In this text file,
you should specify the following:
A working name for your project
This is the name that we will use to refer to your game right now.
You are not committed to this as your final game name.
The name of your development team
This is just for fun. You should something clever (and by clever, I mean not stupid)
A short (1 paragraph) description of your game
This is just a high-level overview, and it does not need to be the final
idea for your game. You do not need any more detail than what you provided
on the first
communication lab. Use the feedback from that lab to guide your submission.
Your project leader
This person is ultimately responsible for all aspects of the project. They
will organize the group and its tasks, make sure everything is on schedule,
be the final word on all design decisions, and be in frequent communication
with the course staff. This should be someone who is respectful and gets
along with everyone.
Your lead programmer
This person will be responsible for the code architecture of the game,
assigning programming tasks, making sure modules are incorporated properly,
and will be the final word on all technical decisions. It should not
be the same as your project leader.
The members of the development team and their contact information
At a minimum, list the emails of your group members. However, phone numbers
and IM names are very helpful too.
The development roles (responsibilities) of each group member
Be as specific as possible. If you know someone will be creating the level
editor, list that rather than just "programmer". In particular,
note who is your lead artist. Furthermore, if your group is going to have
a musician, list that as well.
Your weekly outside of class meeting time and place.
This is the final time and place - you are committed to this for the
semester. The staff prefers times before 8pm, and close to central campus - we
will be able to attend and help you more often that way.
Due Saturday, February 5th at 11:59 pm
You should submit a text file called
containing all of the information above. You only need to submit this file
once for the entire group.
We will grade this submission, though the grade will be pass/fail based solely
upon whether your group took the assignment seriously. This assignment
will be part of your organization grade.
