  • Haxe: The little known secret to scalable, cross-platform game creation

    FlowPlay Chief Revenue Officer Craig Robinson delivers a Trade Trends session at Pocket Gamer Connects Seattle 2019 on May 13th to 14th.

    Haxe is an open source, cross-platform programming language and development environment, which can be used to create games, applications, websites, and more. Haxe has existed for over a decade, yet few have heard of it and even fewer have utilised to build games. This is unfortunate, as Haxe offers a number of advantages over other game development languages and environments.

    This talk will focus on the high-level reasons to choose Haxe over alternatives for creating your next game. It will draw on FlowPlay’s experience in using Haxe to build and deploy Vegas World, a game with over one million lines of code, across the web and mobile platforms.

    Audience members will come away with a good idea of why they may want to choose Haxe for their next projects as well as pointers to resources where they can learn more.

  • Gaming platforms: Going beyond distribution [Roblox]

    Steel Media CEO Chris James and Roblox Vice President of Product, Developer Platform Enrico D’Angelo deliver a Trade Trends session at Pocket Gamer Connects Seattle 2019 on May 13th to 14th.

    There has been a lot of buzz about new gaming platforms, the “Netflix of gaming”, game streaming, and cross-platform compatibility. However, there is more to the future of gaming than just moving traditional triple-A titles to the cloud or all-you-can eat subscription models.

    The Roblox platform features a sophisticated technology back end that promotes an exclusively user-generated content experience for our community. Roblox’s UGC platform encourages individual entrepreneurship while actively and responsibly promoting safety and civility.

    Roblox sees the future of 3D multiplayer experiences incorporating a social fabric that brings together people from all over the world to enjoy millions of human co-experiences, powered by a robust, cloud-based game engine that enables anyone to create and be successful.
