Seth was the Project Lead for Escherreal ensuring that the production process was smooth and successful by continually eliminating road blocks for all 15 developers as well as facilitating good team communication that kept everyone focused and on task. He ensured that all team members knew that their voices and opinions would heard and directly addressed and that they could work to the best of their abilities. He helped develop the management process for Agile Development using Scrum that the team became highly dependent on. At every successful milestone, he arranged a celebration for the team at his home rewarding their hard work and dedication with an amazing meal and refreshments. Seth was also the voice acting talent for both of the main characters, Raffi and M.C. Escher and coordinated the efforts for developing the music and writing the lyrics for the credits song which he recorded in his home studio.

Escherreal is an MC Escher themed video game with 3D platforming and puzzles. As Raffi, players will be sucked into his Uncle Escher's mind bending universe that makes you look at things from a different perspective...literally. You'll have to navigate this world using two of Escher's crazy inventions: one being the Mirror Marble which "flips" gravity on its head and the other being the Infinispecs which transforms the world from 3D to 2D.

As a Development Director on Escherreal, I worked with the project lead to implement Scrum and tailor it to our team. What worked out best for us was weekly sprints complete with planning meetings, daily standups, and reviews. Tasks were estimated in ideal hours(days) and were assigned a priority value. All tasks, hours worked, and completion statuses were recorded in Hansoft and updated visually on our Scrum wall. I tracked our estimated vs actual hours daily, through burnup charts, and weekly, in the form of a velocity chart. The joke title "Philstapo" arose from my reminders to the team to update their hours.

Our artists started out by making modular pieces for us to build puzzles with in engine. We built many test environments with these pieces and iterated on them based on playtest and faculty feedback. Nearly every build and re-build of an environment was done by me. Once we settled on the final design of Escher's Villa, our art team re-built the modular prototype in Maya and customized it. Even after bringing it into the engine we had to made tweaks to the layout. It was at that point that the artists gave me a copy of the Maya file to manipulate. I reduced polygons, edited existing geometry, and even created a few of the simpler models in game. The furnishings for the villa's interior were arranged by me in Maya as well.
