Game Development Process

Nick Earl, Arcadia Kim and Erin Turner, Electronic Arts

Kim explains that EA's strategy is based on nailing down the "X," or organic fun concept for that product. EA shares knowledge across studios and around development creating a collaborative environment. The development process is pretty standard: build prototypes, do market tests, start to build it and, ultimately, finalize the product, she says.
