Overview: Investing time in creating your own tools can be really valuable, even when you're working with a third party engine. Custom tools can make a lot of things easier. For Necrosoft, we use custom tools to allow our multiple disciplines to collaborate together and define workflow, and to get our games onto new platforms early, aside many other benefits. Shane Marks will go through what's important when writing tools, as well as show some dos and don't using practical examples from the multi-platform titles developed at Necrosoft Games.
