Our story began 19th of January when group 15TIKO4 was split into smaller teams to develop awesome and educational games. Our group consisted four business information systems students and a visiting graphic artist who studies in Mediapolis. Only thing we were still missing was a name. We needed something under which we could proudly present our game project. After desperate brainstorming we decided to rely on a random name generator which helped us to find what we were looking for: Confused Volcano.
Our working method is based on Scrum framework which split our project into active two-week sprints and that way helped us to create an effective working environment. Every team member has its own role in project and our team is able to work independently and produce a finished game to our client. In our team, every member is equal and work is done in a very interactive environment by listening to everyone’s opinion and learn from them.
