WHAT I LEARNED IN THIS PROJECT
I perfected my project management skills with the integration of the AGILE Methodology. I learned how to design and balance game systems. It was my first time creating Pixel Art styled assets and I'm very happy with the result.

WHAT I WOULD'VE DONE DIFFERENTLY
For a long time in development, we were highly focused on the systemic and optimization side of the game which took the form of Contracts tied to a Point System. Though, we realized quite late that the fun of our game arose from the use of the Tools more than the planning of the most efficient routes. The mistake we made is that we saw the Game World and the Player Interface as two separate entities. Though, each action in the Game World should've influenced the Player Interface and vice versa. For example, the last Tool we added — the Scissors 
— was the embodiment of that idea. When the player cuts down tentacles using the Scissors in the Player Interface, it directly influences the Game World by clearing paths for the transport shuttles.
