Also on Tuesday, Athena Peters from Turbine Games visited us. She is the executive lead producer at Turbine for their Lord of the Rings MMO RPG. She told us about her experiences producing and how she got started in the game industry. She also told us why she decided to be a producer instead of a designer, and how she got to that point.
Upon playing our game, she provided us with notes on how we might be able to enhance player experience more, providing bigger systems of reward and interaction that will make the final game much more engaging and entertaining.
It was a really interesting opportunity and a good day.
