Data Driven Game Development
Game development is a very iterative process and it is increasingly the
case that iteration and tuning continues on after the launch of a title.
Decoupling your game data from your game logic and platform code can
keep your game flexible and responsive to design iterations at every
stage of development. Gathering the right data from players can also
guide your decisions about when to pivot, what to change and how those
changes are affecting the success of your game.
