Oxfordshire-based Gusto Games (Championship Manager
) has announced it will implement Hansoft's Project Management software in its production process.
Sharing the same name as the company, Hansoft is used for managing tasks and collaboration on a day by day basis by programmers, artists, project managers and producers. The software’s latest release, version 5.0, introduces a bug tracking tool that is designed to “help integrate the QA process closer with development.”
In addition to their existing Bloxham studio, Gusto Games opened a studio in Derby in mid-2007, which focuses on developing action and adventure titles. The Bloxham studio primarily develops sporting titles.
Gusto Games producer Struan Roberston commented, "Moving to Hansoft from our previous project management system has been a quiet revolution. Rather than using separate programs for waterfall and agile development, it’s allowed us to bring all of our production methodologies under one roof with minimum disruption and learning; if you know about agile development, then you already know how to use Hansoft because it does everything you’d expect and more.”
