Description: Switching from console to mobile game development isnít just a matter of making your games smaller and adding touch controls. The challenge for seasoned console and PC developers is knowing when to trust your instincts Ė and when to toss them out the window. The talk covers 10 lessons learned from Vector Unitís 2 year transition from console to mobile development, a brief list of critical Doís and Donítís illustrated with specific examples from our own experience. We'll cover ways in which traditional ďbest practicesĒ can implode when applied to tiny teams and blistering schedules, as well as some areas where your experience outside of mobile can give you a leg up on the competition.
Takeaway: The talk covers specific practices for small-project scheduling and organization, design management, rapid-response decision making, and more -- illustrated with specific examples from Vector Unit's experience.
Intended Audience: For developers and producers with at least moderate experience in the console or PC space, who are thinking about or are making a move to mobile. Also for mobile developers who suspect they may still have something to learn from traditional development techniques.
