Blazing a trail in modern multi-platform development means a lot of lessons learned - spend an hour in this session to learn 4 years worth of successes and mistakes. From tech to business, marketing, and design, learn how to plan ahead to deliver an optimal player experience across a wide range of play styles and devices.

    Takeaway

    The talk covers lessons learned and pitfalls to avoid when building cross-platform games with small teams. The entire spectrum of development from technology considerations for multiple devices (including networking, business and marketing strategies) to design and interface considerations are addressed.
