A group effort
Masahiro Sakurai is back with yet another game development video, and this one fits into the “Programming & Tech” category.
Given how large dev teams tend to be, what do you do when multiple members make changes to a file at the same time? Sakurai says he used to wonder about that himself, so he figures other do as well. That’s why he’s put together a dev video to explain how things work!
The Smash Bros. series, especially in more recent years, has to be one of the biggest collaborative games there is. Each installment requires an insane amount of moving parts, and that certainly includes multiple people working together on the same component. If anyone knows how to make that work efficiently, it’s Sakurai!
