Designing and developing multi-user Flash games - my session at FlashBrighton on Tuesday (13th January 2009)

Seb of FlashBrighton / PaperVision / Plug-in Media fame has very kindly invited me to talk at the FlashBrighton user group, so I will be pontificating on multi-player games (like Zwok, above, the game I developed for Bloc/Sony) on Tuesday. Here's the details:

Iain will tell you everything you need know to start creating multi-user Flash games: from a humble high-scores screen to real-time game-play and persistent worlds. He'll show you design and development lessons learned from real-world projects. Specific topics will include:

  • Choosing a server platform;

  • Sign-up and log-in;

  • Community and chat;

  • Game lobbies and match making;

  • Turn-based vs. realtime gameplay; and;

  • A look at which kinds of games are most suitable for multi-user play.

Hi Iain,
Is there any chance you could film this and post it somewhere? Or just post your slides afterwards?
It sounds really interesting.
Thanks, and good luck.
