Currently, we’re building a rough UI for the current prototype. Next, we’ll work on scraping data from forums and research on social media and behavior. We want to transform the information so that it’s useful to game developers in EA. How can we gain further insights from all this data? How does it reflect player sentiments on the game? We aim to find out.
