This talk tells the story of how devs from 10 teams, including narrative, animation, level design, programming, and UIonly 2 of which had dedicated resourceswere rallied to deliver this high-quality, low-cost feature by combining transparent and high-visibility project management tools with a flat organizational structure that cultivated a sense of ownership, agency, and voice among contributors by inviting each to give equal input on the feature's content, pipelines, and tools.
