This was my first major game project where I felt comfortable and prepared for the work. Previous game projects had always had a major learning curve, but for this one the group members and I felt prepared. I was assigned the role of product director, a role I had grown confident in performing, and it was up to me to make sure everyone was doing their work properly and as support in case something needed addressing. I enjoy the leadership role and I feel as if the people that work with me appreciate the effort I put into making everyone feel comfortable and on track. There were some issues regarding group members having clashing schedules, but we managed to complete the work on time.
