This paper aims to fill the gap that exists about software development processes in game development in the research literature, and address the gap in the research literature by investigating and reporting information about the software development processes used in game development. To investigate the role of the software development process in relation to the game development process, and to better understand the processes and practices used in game software development, a single industrial based case study was undertaken and reported to investigate in a real world context the software development processes and practices used in game development. This research contributes to our knowledge of the field of game development and potentially forms the foundation for further research in the area.
