Creative projects are a beast to finish. Knowing exactly how and when games with novel mechanics, narratives or aesthetics will be ready for release can be a challenge for any team, even those with shipped titles under their belt already.

Cherie “Games Midwife” Davidson will draw from her years of experience supporting creative teams shipping creative projects to share common pitfalls that occur in the last “20%” of development and the warning signs that a project may be headed for a premature release date.
