  • 1 Better together – How to build a mobile game with help from your community

    CCP Senior Producer, Mobile & VR Portfolio Sam Barton delivers a Developer Toolkit session at Pocket Gamer Connects London 2019 on January 21st to 22nd.

    When CCP London invited attendees of their EVE: Vegas fan gathering to play a pre-alpha version of EVE: War of Ascension, little did they know that the playtest would still be running over a year later. Only seven months into development, the playtest was supposed to last only three days, but the quality of information generated during that weekend resulted in it quickly becoming too valuable to shut down.

    This talk will explain why running playtests alongside development can have a profound and immediate impact on your game’s development direction as well as how they can provide the entire team with a better understanding of their audience. It will also touch upon why maintaining an engaged community during development can produce a host of enthusiastic collaborators and establish an impassioned golden cohort.

  • 4 Meet your new and improved teammate! Human-directed AI agents and gaming

    Wingman AI Agents Director John O’Malia delivers a Developer Toolkit session at Pocket Gamer Connects London 2019 on January 21st to 22nd.

    Artificial Intelligence made incredible progress in 2018 – OpenAI/DOTA2 was an epic display of human versus AI action. For most players though, the only AI they encounter is bots that masquerade as players and degrade gameplay.

    It’s time for a change!

    John O’Malia of Wingman will be talking about an emerging generation of AI agents that listen to and serve players, acting for or alongside them as teammates, creating a whole new range of possibilities, from human/AI team tournaments, to dynamic NPCs in unbounded worlds, to playing complex games on mobile using voice alone. And the impact of human-directed AI goes far beyond gaming…

    Plarium Platform Technology Specialist Guy Ulmer delivers a Developer Toolkit session at Pocket Gamer Connects London 2019 on January 21st to 22nd.

    This talk covers the “tools of the trade” available today for game developers targeting mobile platforms, who are in great need of focused analysis into the type of devices they should target and prioritize. Some tools are straightforward, but I will be sharing more advanced methodologies and tips on how to leverage (and cross-reference) some less obvious sources of information, that can be of great value to any mobile studio.

  • 9 Optimising your mobile game using scriptable render pipelines

    InnoGames Expert Unity Developer Yilmaz Kiymaz delivers a Developer Toolkit session at Pocket Gamer Connects London 2019 on January 21st to 22nd.

    As a recent addition to Unity, Scriptable Render Pipelines (SRP) give us near-total control over how our game gets rendered. This opens up a lot of new avenues for optimising our games that were previously difficult or even impossible to reach.

    Since both performance and battery life are paramount for mobile games, SRP is a very welcome addition to our toolset. In this session, we will take a quick dive into converting an existing mobile project that uses the built-in rendering pipeline into one that uses this new approach to rendering and take a look at the performance wins we get in the process.
