Creating original IP through incubation and experimentation
WHAT ARE INCUBATION FRIDAYS?
Every other Friday, the entire company shelves our existing production, and focuses entirely on new IPs. During this time, any team member can pitch a new idea and try to enlist people to help them develop it during the incubation or they can continue to work on a previously pitched new IP from a previous Incubation Friday.
FINDING THE FUN
Incubation Fridays are meant to be a creative breeding ground, free of publisher expectations and milestone schedules. That's why Incubation Friday games don't get release dates or schedules; the goal is to keep iterating and experimenting until you find the fun.
Once an incubation game has "found the fun", then it is greenlit and will get its own full-time team and production schedule.
We are currently incubating titles for all platforms.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Having regularly scheduled game jams has many benefits:
- Everyone gets a chance to lead a project.
- The birth of experimental and risky new game mechanics.
- Get fresh ideas from everyone, not just the studio head.
- A creative refresh from working on the same IP everyday.
