TERA producer Chris Hager: “So, what exactly do you do? I bet you get to play games all day.”
“Well, I produce things. I product-manage, schedule various departments, and integrate everything into a smooth-running live service, while also looking to the future of the product based on design and player feedback.”
“Okay…but seriously, you must play games all day.”
This was a recent conversation I had with a friend when I tried to explain what I do. Being a producer on TERA is full of challenges, but one of the most surprising challenges is describing exactly what it is that I do. Allow me to back into this explanation.
