Rewind & Play is a Swedish start-up company, passionate about game development.

We have a senior .NET developer who believes developing games is the most exciting area of software development. This was a perfect opportunity for both Rewind & Play and Forbytes to work together, as we are about enjoying the work and the employees’ development.

How we work
We believe that effective communication and processes must be in place during any software product development.
Communication and processes matter. Together, Rewind & Play and Forbytes’ team implemented a simple communication strategy to ensure effective information sharing with timely and relevant feedback. We also used several of the agile processes for facilitating development of the product; including weekly planning sessions, daily stand-ups (via Skype) and progress reports using the road map to show what components are being worked on and which are completed.
Start with the end in mind and begin at the beginning. To understand what should be built, we started with designing a product diagram to break down the end product into its component parts. Based on the product breakdown structure we were able to decide which components would give most value early on.
Tools we use in our collaboration
Slack for team-wide messaging and new feature deployment notifications
Skype for daily internal team meetings and catch ups
Jira for requirements management, project tracking and time estimates
Confluence for weekly progress reporting and maintaining the build road map

“Forbytes took an interest in our business and wanted to build a relationship. They have e-commerce experience, which was important for managing our database and connecting us with one of the world’s largest resources related to the game’s subject”.
