|Overview:||This lecture will provide game developers with insight into the makings of a cross-platform game; the key example will be School of Dragons, a 3D MMORPG based on DreamWorks Animation's "How to Train Your Dragon" franchise. Specifically, the lecture will address the process by which developers create games across multiple platforms, how the multiple platforms interact with one another and feed into the overall gaming experience, and the challenging (but necessary and crucial) decisions that need to be made when planning to develop a cross-platform game.|
