Microsoft Challenge Accepted – make 100 HTML5 game apps for Win 8 and Win Phone 8… in 4 months.
Project Post-Mortem hosted by the super people at Invest Ottawa
What do you do when Microsoft calls and asks you if you can bring all your games to Win 8 and Win Phone 8 using HTML5?
Yes… of course.
Would you like to know how it happened? How did it go? What did we learn?
Join Sylien Games CEO Sylvain Rochon, a couple awesome Microsoft Evangelists, and a bunch of game industry experts, indie developers, and general game designers interested in developing Windows 8 applications for a celebration in success, truly useful information and some fun.
We’ll describe the good the bad and the ugly about the Challenge of publishing 100 games to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 Marketplaces, showcasing Sylien Games’ abilities and expertise at generating large amounts of commercially viable games on a small budget in little time, and discussing the various Microsoft resources available to companies interested in creating awesome apps on the new Microsoft OS/Platforms/Tools.
Try the games for yourself on some Win 8 devices, or bring your own Windows 8 device to the event and play against each other… have some refreshments, chat with others with a passion for HTML5, gaming, or the mobile platform, and generally have a good time.
Start Time: 5pm, June 18th
Location: Invest Ottawa, 80 Aberdeen Street, 1st Floor. Ottawa.
End: Around 7pm and some of us may well carry the conversation to the Heart & Crown to keep talking.
Registration: Since there is only room for 100, if you want to go, please Register here http://syliengamesmicrosoftchallenge.eventbrite.com
There will be roughly 30 minutes of presentation by Sylien Games and Microsoft at around 5:30pm followed by food, drinks and some free time to check out the games, network, chat, and ask questions.
