A new survey is seeking to collect anonymous anecdotes from developers regarding their experiences with producers, both good and bad, to be collected in an upcoming Gamasutra feature.
Production consultant Keith Fuller is conducting the new survey as a follow up to a similar February survey
which asked producers questions about their companies' production processes.
The results of that survey
found producers overwhelmingly considered production a strength at their companies, and that they would like to see company leadership improved more than anything other area, among other results.
But some readers criticized the survey as one-sided, since it only represented the feeling of producers and not the other developers that have to work with those producers.
Hence, Fuller is launching a new survey
seeking examples of good and bad examples of producer interactions from developers of all stripes. Producers can also respond to the new survey with details of what they feel most helps and hinders them in their job.
Those interested in participating can submit stories anonymously through SurveyMonkey using this link for producers
or this link for all other developers
. The best responses will be collected into an article to be featured on Gamasutra sometime in the future.
