Gaming with the Chromecast device was already possible but very limited. The list of available games is very small and there’s a good reason for it: developers require to develop different apps in diferente languages in order to make them work on Chromecast.
But this nightmare will end when Marmalade launches their extension for the Chromecast device. With it, developers will only require to develop one project on Marmalade to make it work. You can start preparing yourself already if you want to reach that slice of customers, or you can go to Yeeply and hire programmers to develop games on Marmalade.
Obviosly this is also good news for any gamer that uses the Chromecast device. Now they won’t be limited to apps, vídeos and music, they will also be able to play their favorite games through their TV.
Today we bring good news for those who: 1) develop games for the Sony’s gaming systems; 2) develop games for any devices with the revolutionary Unity engine. A few days ago it was annouced that Sony and Unity Technologies extended their partnership. Summing up, this means more games made in Unity 3D, which also means more games for Playstation players.
To go a little into detail, Playstation games developers will continue to have access to several Unity Pro developing tools to create their own games. And for the future more tools will be available to make it easier to develop projects for these consoles.
And if you don’t have any experience in making games but would like to start developing games for Playstation in Unity, that’s also possible by hiring a developer from a website like Yeeply, where anyone can hire developers and designers for their own projects.
Yoyo Games released a new platform to combine to their popular engine GameMaker: GameMaker: Player. Until now most of the games were available through Yoyo’s website, but now with this new “market”, a game made and hosted on GameMaker: Player will reach millions!
GameMaker: Player works just like an app store but with benefits. Games can be launched free and paid, and just like what happens on Steam, developers can release their games in alpha / beta stage. Even the smallest concept of a game feature can be shared through this new platform.
For those who make games for a living their only money source are the ads, know that not all the developing platforms offer natively the necessary tools to make ads very lucrative, unless their games are very popular.
The team behind Marmalade is aware of this issue and announced a few days ago that its now possible to use Amazon mobile ads on games developed on Marmalade. What makes the Amazon Mobile Ads API different from many others is that you get paid by impression. This way you’re sure earn something from everytime a player sees an ad.
It wasn’t always easy to find content made by other developers. Sometimes the ideas don’t come up, sometimes we just don’t the knowledge necessary to make something out of Unreal Engine. And one thing is certain: UE4 is very powerful, but it’s also very complex.
Epic Games has heard the cries for help from several developing companies that need access to more content easier and they have fulfilled their wishes. As of last month, we now have access to the Unreal Engine Marketplace.
Do you know what a “WiMi5” is? Chances are you don’t, but if you’re looking to gain some experience (and money, maybe) by making HTML5 games, there you certainly want to know about WiMi5.
So, basically WiMi5 is a platform that allows any user, experienced or not in programming, to develop their own games. Instead of studying HTML5 for months to make a game like Flappy Bird, you can skip all the time that would take and make your own Flappy Bird pretty easily.
