Features

Kanban boards per milestone and discipline

Game development is multidisciplinary, and so are we. HacknPlan split your boards by technical category and milestone in order to improve your productivity and focus. Assign your team members, track your progress, and get instant feedback on how the current iteration is going.

Integrated game design documentation

Classic GDDs are difficult to create and maintain and are not compatible with the iterative and agile nature of how games are made today. As a solution, we provide a dynamic structure where you can define your design and link it to the tasks that will bring it to life. Let your tasks definition and progress complement your design documentation and keep it alive. Stale docs no more!

Metrics and reporting

You can’t manage what you can’t measure. We provide metrics to help you optimize your planning and detect potential issues by telling you where you spend your time and resources. Burndown charts, Gantt charts, progress reports, activity logs… Don’t waste the chance of learning and improving from your own experience!

And much more

ITERATIVE DEVELOPMENT

Define milestones with deadlines and build your games in an iterative way

BACKLOG

NOTIFICATIONS

Our customers say

cristiana marmalade 2

It was always very important to me to find a tool that the entire team would enjoy using, and not just me as the producer. A tool that would make our job as a team easier, and not trickier, something quick to learn and fun to use. HacknPlan is just right. Programmers can see their tasks clearly and how they fit into the overall project and artists can showcase their art to the entire team. It's simple, fast and intuitive!

I have found no other project management tool specifically geared towards game development. We've been using it since beta, and it has been a pleasure to watch the tool continuously improve based on user feedback. I can't recommend it more!

Rob Buchheit – Creative Director & Project Lead at Nectar Game Studios

HacknPlan breaks high-level production down into bitesized, detailed pieces, feeding the maws of producers, team leads and developers alike. I particularly love the dependencies feature, which makes it easy to plan around blockers and bottlenecks. Yay!
