It was great meeting you at the November Full Indie event. Thank you for joining us for a great night of tech and, naturally, beer! We appreciated the hospitality and really enjoyed getting to talk to so many of you. Let’s do it again, shall we?
As Sean talked about, we provide independent developers, students, and start-up studios with FREE, self-service access to all of our multi- / cross-platform online services (multiplayer matchmaking, player metrics & rankings, and cloud storage). Developers on every platform – from PC to iOS to Android, and beyond – can visit www.poweredbygamespy.com, sign up instantly for a developer account, and start coding online-enabled games for free using the same, scalable services that have powered features in iconic games like Red Dead Redemption, Mario Kart Wii and the Crysis franchise.
We’re also making it easier for you to develop online games that deliver the same rich, engaging online experiences as AAA titles, no matter what platform you’re developing for. We provide a common API for all platforms that reduces the burden of integrating online solutions for each platform. We’re making all of our services easier to access in engines like Unity 3D (for which we’ve just rolled out C# libraries for Windows games on the PC). And we’re building a new library of screencasts, tutorials, and sample apps to speed integration for developers at every level. (You can view some of these screencasts now at www.youtube.com/GameSpyTechnology). Our full slate of documentation is online in Wiki format, and our developer forums provide you with a fast channel for finding developer support from GameSpy Technology engineers and other game developers with deep experience integrating our services into their titles.
Our industry is in massive flux right now, but we’re certain of one thing: independent game developers are here to stay, and are already shaping the future of gaming. We want to provide tools to accelerate that change. You can read a little more about our thoughts in the gaming press:
Please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions! We’re here to help.
