I beleive while a good producer can come up with clever ideas to tackle production Deadlines.  They should also have a good idea of the usage of all the software needed to create.  Whether it is in games or Animation.

Notes
I really dove deep into the backend of this game, way more than I initially intended. My original goal was simple: take a quirky concept like a "stopwatch," add a unique twist to it—think procrastination and motivational quotes—and wrap it up quickly. But as I got into the development, I found myself adding layers and features that extended far beyond what most players might ever notice. For instance, I included elements that only unlock after a year of gameplay. It's almost a secret world within the game that few might discover, but it adds depth and a sense of ongoing discovery for anyone who sticks with it that long.

Notes
This game I made over the course of 5months.  I had to 3d model and texture a lot of these assets as I had no budget for bonus assets.  While it was fun to make I ran into many issues with the code complexity that took weeks to solve.  I was Just ok with the end result being a snake game.  I think with more time I could of made the Japanese people traffic a little more diverse.
