What is the PCP?
The Project Criticism Partnership is a community partnership where members join up in pairs to give constructive criticism to each other's work.

PCP's four noble goals:
  • Increase good traffic in both the Concept Development and Project Discussion forum.
  • Recognize and encourage good constructive criticism practice.
  • Provide members with useful feedback for their projects and concept work.
  • Help people make better games, art and music.

PCP Membership rules:
  • Exchange of feedback must be equivalent.  Both members of the partnership must give each other the same amount of critical posts and content
  • Members must refrain from these kinds of spammy posting behaviors while fulfilling their Partnership agreement.
  • Members must give thoughtful and constructive criticism that aids development.  If you aren't sure what that means please look at the example posts listed in this post.
  • Major breaches any of these will jeopardize your chances in taking part in future partnerships.

PCP Membership Benefits:
  • Guaranteed good constructive feedback to your thread.
  • Recognition for good constructive criticism.
  • A chance to network and exchange ideas with other game designers.

How do I join the PCP?
To join you must have a topic somewhere in the forums (be it for your artwork, music, or game) and respond to this thread with all the information asked for by this template:
Join Template

After filling out the template we will pair you next week (on Jan. 7) with someone who fits with you the best for what you are looking for and whom you help with your strengths.  From there you will be committed by default to give each other four good criticism posts.  You may raise or lower that commitment mutually as you wish, but as outlined by the rules the exchange of criticism must be equivalent.  We expect all criticism partnerships to meet their goals by the end of the month.  At the end of January there will be a feedback thread where you can share your best partnership posts and discuss any issues you ran into, and suggests improvements for the partnership set ups.  We will run this program once a month with a sign up drive at the beginning of each month. 

If you have any questions as to what this is about or what it entails you may post them on the thread.

... PCP is an illegal substance. You chose your words carefully to get that, didn't you?

I think that would be more beneficial for others than for me getting my projects criticized, because...well, let's just say it is tough for me to finish games because I have an active life that doesn't allow me to really finish a game right now. :D

Mapping is included in the intentionally vague "Art" category. But if you feel that you want it to be a separate category, then go ahead and put mapping down if you'd like.

Also, a surprising amount of signups so far! :D

Focus: Nothing really, go hog wild.

Part of me says I shouldn't. I'm a bitter, cynical man, and I rarely work on my project, but whatev'. If you don't mind someone so critical that he thinks that Mother 3 was a work of art and Enix hasn't put out a good game since they bought out Square, then by all means.

Signups are complete!

In total, eight people signed up for this month's PCP, which means that there will be four partnerships. I've PMed you guys your partners and the links to their projects.

So now it's time to swap some critiques! Remember, you have until January 31st, so take your time and make your critiques detailed, specific and with some practical advice, After all, you want to receive good critiques, don't you?

Remember the guidelines:

With that being said, you can use this topic to ask any questions you might have regarding PCP. Go nuts guys! Looking forward to seeing 'dem critiques! :thumb:

I see that almost everyone involved has swapped two critiques with their partners. Question is, would you guys like to switch partners for another round before the thirty-first. By the way I love what I've seen from you guys so far.

Might as well milk this for as much feedback as possible. I feel like I'm at a disadvantage seeing as everyone else has some kind of working demo while I'm still at the drawing board with my project.

Sounds cool to me, there's only so much one can analyze about a single project.

ROUND 2


Woops, looks like I'm a bit late with this @_@

Anyway - it's February now, which means that a new round of PCP is about to begin! But first, let's check out some of the awesome critiques you guys gave in January :O

Content Hidden


I missed a few of them but these were some of the critiques that really stood out.

Anyways - I've sent out a bunch of PM's to pretty much anybody who has a project topic right now. Anyone who participated in January's PCP is welcome to do so again, but hopefully we'll get a bunch of new participants, too!

Signups end on February 10 - make sure you get in before then!!


(I moved this topic to Project Discussion to hopefully get more attention, although there's still a link from Game Development Discussion)

Criticism Strengths: Gameplay, Sound & Music
Focus: Art (mapping & spriting*), Story (currently no plot, non-linear gameplay...but non-linear gameplay isn't necessarily a bad thing right?), and does RGSS scripting count?

*I want to be able to learn how to create good looking, clean sprites, so I can have one more skill that makes me less dependent on others.
