Greetings Hillside teachers,

Our group is called Zorgon (also known as Human Geo Team 1). Our team members are Emma Taborsky, Andy Kearney, Colin O'Byrne, Elliot Godzich, and Leon Liu.

We just completed our first round of risk identification and analysis and wanted to inform you of what we see as the biggest risks for our game. In order of importance, we believe that technology complications, customer dissatisfaction, game balance and enjoyability are the primary risks.

In our opinion, the game engine poses the largest risk. We have identified two promising libraries, but it’s difficult to be certain at this time that they will be adequate for our needs. In addition, it is difficult to gauge how steep the learning curve for these engines will be, especially since none of the team members have any experience with these tools.

We plan to look further into both, and potentially prototype with both of them to ensure that at least one is adequate. We expect that dealing with this possible risk early will be sufficient to account for it.
We will keep you updated on our progress.

Thanks for your time,
Team Zorgon
