  13. 13. Compliance<br />Graphic design revolves around the handling of strong chemicals, so, it’s a bit different to games and gaming. However, even the making of games carries it’s own series of quality marks.<br /><ul><li> Personnel management – Investors in People
  14. 14. Individual training packages – FCP, Photoshop, Microsoft Accreditation
  15. 15. Safety – Games have to carry warnings over photosensitive epilepsy</li></ul>Would you employ someone without specific training?<br />
  16. 16. Compliance<br />There are loads of laws associated with the making of games. Here’s a couple for you to research in more depth along with those you may already recognise!<br />Tip: Use and refer to these on assignments 5.2, 5.3 and 5.4. The above logos are quality marks and as such should be used with the user having full knowledge of the importance of the mark. You will be asked questions about this at your pitch. Oh noes!<br />
  17. 17. Organising<br />For assignment 5.2 and 5.4 you need to plan and show how you will make your game. I’m interested to see how your game will shape up over a period of weeks or months (or even years). The second years are currently following through their game plan of last year. I thought it might benefit you to see how it could be done.<br />

  31. 31. Pre-production Techniques<br />“In the game industry, it is often said that “you’re only as good as your last<br />game”. Unfortunately, many members of the industry have a hard time proving<br />what their last game was due to the largely arbitrary crediting methods used by<br />their employers.” <br />http://archives.igda.org/credit/<br />
