The development schedule is geared towards the version 1.0 release of City of Sharing. It will consist of a series of tests and updates.
The first set of tests, which is underway, will be to resolve the game play mechanism: the turn process, components and general flow of the game. These should be completed by the end of August.
Once the game flows properly, the second series can get underway. These will be testing the first game location, Sheffield, with players with experience of CLTs and of the location (M.arch staff/students and Sheffield CLT members).
These will test the contents of the game and the methods of informing the design of community development.
The third phase of testing will look at how the game can be easily adapted and set up for different locations and communities with tests in Nottingham and possibly London and Leeds.
