This month we’re hosting a combined Android and iOS meetup. We have a guest speaker from EA coming to talk to the group, Joe Alread, head of Live Services. Joe will be sharing advice, stories and lessons for making decisions on how to scale down to mobile. These lessons are applicable to both gaming and non-gaming applications.
We look forward to having everyone downtown for this informative event!
Engaging the Mobile Lifestyle
The mobile user is a picky one; you’re likely to lose them quickly if you don’t treat them correctly! Just ask Joe Alread, whose Live Services group at Electronic Arts recently transitioned from working solely on console games to also creating mobile games. Join Joe as he discusses the hard lessons his team learned when designing for both console and mobile player bases.
