What went well

  • Everyone was able to get to (in person or via voice communication) and contribute to the first meeting
  • The team hit all the milestones I thought we should hit for the tech demo, plus Michael was able to figure out that pathing was a lot easier to set up than we had initially thought
  • Survived our first merge conflict with minimal damage

What could have gone better

  • Not a whole lot
  • Maybe starting on work a little earlier. The tech demo could probably have had a lot more in it given the pace we were working at once we hit stride


  • First and foremost, administrative tasks and documents like the GDD
  • Continue fleshing out the player controller
  • Check in with teammates to discuss major milestones for the next week
