Video: Picking the right tools for game development

As part of Pocket Gamer Connects Bangalore 2015, a panel of developers joined Unity Technology's Oscar Clark for a discussion of the technical aspects of games.

Clark was joined by Ripu Daman, Business Manager - eCommerce, Media & SMBs at Akamai Technologies; Joel Johnson, founder of digiKhel; and Matt Powers, Senior Producer at Reliance Games.

Do what's best for you

The panel agreed that while cost-effectiveness is worth considering, and therefore developers should use as many free tools available, it's important to make sure they use the right tools to suit their game.

This includes everything from the game engine to analytics, but Powers was keen to stress that "you are successful if you ship a game", so collecting data shouldn't be a major focus for first-timers.
