The 7-Day Prototype

Check out this story of a very high-speed game development effort at Carnegie Mellon University's Experimental Gameplay project. Of particular interest is their chart of the value of teamwork / collaboration.

One big take away - the value of a good thing (like teamwork) is not constant or linear!

Interesting story. And yes, of course I downloaded the game!

There is an exception, where developing code as a team may have value: Extreme programming. I've not known anyone who used this, but essentially Extreme Programming utilizes two developers coding at the same time, one looking over the shoulder of the other.
