Understanding the game development process is integral to achieving success in the game industry. Although informative, the attempts made to make people more knowledgeable on the matter may not reflect current industry practices. The information unarticulated by these mediums could be important for job placements or advancements in the industry. In order to gain a better understanding of the game development process, we assimilated with the development studio GDX to help develop a game for the Wii console. Our tasks involved developing several of the mini-games within the game. As a result of our work, we gained invaluable insight on various aspects of the game development process and experienced the delights and disappointments that are associated with this fast-growing industry.
