I took some time to figure out what features I’ll need to implement, what art and sound I’ll need to create, and what the complexity of it all will be, and I’ve come up with a backlog of 103 Agile story points.
Now, iterations are going to be kind of loosely based on “Whenever I get it done” as opposed to time-bound sprints. Still, having all of the work figured out up front helped me figure out that I was missing some features. For instance, an instruction screen! Also, I feel that the rest of LD will be much more focused. I’ll always have a piece of functionality assigned to me that I should be working on.
