The Game Director is responsible for overseeing the entirety of production for a game of Humans vs. Zombies. Beginning at the conception phase, the Game Director helps to establish a core aesthetic for the game, and proceeds to ensure that the chosen aesthetic is maintained during the rest of development. He/she is also responsible for keeping the entire production team on-schedule through frequent small and large team meetings. In addition to duties during production, the Game Director is also responsible for ensuring the smooth flow of play once the game has started. These duties include but are not limited to conflict resolution, checking in with administration throughout the week, reporting game progress to the EVP's, and taking disciplinary action (if needed) against rule offenders.
