Session Name Broken Age's Approach to Scalability
Speaker(s) Oliver Franzke
Company Name(s) Double Fine Productions
Track / Format Visual Arts
Overview Bringing the beautiful and lively world of Broken Age simultaneously to five different platforms ranging from older mobile devices to state of the art PCs with only a small team of programmers was a great challenge. This talk will describe the key decisions made to achieve the necessary scalability, and detail the authoring process for characters and environments, the data build pipeline, and run-time techniques such as rendering tricks for rapid iteration and debugging. Several practical solutions for the many challenges associated with mobile/PC cross-platform game development will be presented in detail.
