Road to Success (July 1st) - Mobile Game Development Alternatives - Andrew Burgert

  1. 1. 1 YetiZen Mobile Game Development Alternatives
  2. 2. Our Practices Graphics Engineering Digital PlatformsGaming Experience Game Engineering We provide services to develop products and tools to bring to life the artists designs. This includes Animation, Lighting, Shading, Visualization Tools and Rendering. We combine Game Design with User Experience to create experiences across multiple platforms. We take these experiences to non-gaming and gaming contexts, seeking to engage users and achieve business goals through fun and play. We create and expand centralized platforms for cross platform developments. A digital platform consists of a coherent technical offer to access a universe of distant, interactive or non-interactive services which can be broadcasted or supplied on-line. We develop full games and features for multiple platforms: (Social, PC, Mobile, Console). We streamline the development process creating feature-rich products around the core IP. We co-develop AAA games working directly for world-class video game developers. .
