This week I felt that I had lost direction with the project however after a meeting with my course leader where we discussed the current state of the game and critically analysed the game objectively, through the eyes of a new player, I now have a good idea of the direction I need to move the project in.
The reason for my loss of direction is likely due to the game surpassing my original vision and clouding what really needs to be happening to turn my game, a minimal viable product, into a great game. The discussion has allowed me see what needs to happen now that the polishing phase has begun.
In the next sprint i will begin the polishing phase of the game. My tasks are focussed on streamlining the user experience and removing aspects of the game that are left over from the original game jam submission that are no longer correct.
