Shake the Sky is an Asian themed casino designed from the ground up. When High 5 hired me, they assigned me to the Red Gold game production team. Our goal was to launch with 20 unique games. This was a tall order. To meet our launch goal it meant developing 9 games, simultaneously, every six weeks. My team’s focus was Shake the Sky, but we also launched some titles for High 5 Casino.
With the assistance of the other PMs, we developed a Lean pipeline system. The process was then tested and implemented across all three of High 5’s production studios. Altogether, we produced over 100 titles in one year.
Oh and did I mention I was while launching an online casino, I was managing the Sound department? That meant every game, every video, everything that needed sound came to me first! Needless to say, things moved quickly, but we had a blast!
