The OpenSuspect project is a team endevour of many volunteers. Our members work on the project in their spare time, often after work or school, so we don't have a rushed development schedule. Many of us regard the project as valuable experience in not just software development but also in team work. Our most important goals during development: * Supportive community * Openness * Keeping extensibiliy in mind * Focus on learning
However, we also understand that a game needs a direction, and some problems are easiest to solve in a top-down fashion. Therefore, we agreed to implement a team structure, where each team have their responsibilities, and are organized by an elected team leader. The project is guided by the council containing the team leaders and a few elected project coordinators, who set the goals together. For the current teams and leadership, check the CONTRIBUTORS file.
The main aims of the game: * Give a very flexible backbone for social deduction games, allow for great variety in future maps, mods and playtiles * Encourage collaborative gameplay that is equally fun for each participant * Chat integration and flexible chat rules to fit various needs * Free Software, Open Source, as all things should be
The exact way the abovementioned goals would be reached is part of the ongoing discussion in the community. Some points have been finalized, some are still being debated.
