Overview: Truly independent teams within a game studio are an interesting idea. Wooga, Supercell and others have promoted having this type of structure. Each team having full ownership over decisions in their game. Teams saying no to the rest of the company when they believe in a product. This all sounds great on paper, but what happens in practice? Adam Telfer goes into details of the ups and downs of working in an independent culture. How Wooga has adapted its processes through the years. A culture where you have full control, but also full responsibility.
