The platforms we target part 1

Hello again, I hope you’re well and this finds you in a good or relaxed mood. This is the first in a multi part series on the platforms that we target, before we dive into that I should describe what we define as a platform.

So when when use the term “platform” we actually mean “Software Platform” which we define as an operating system which allows other smaller software to run  on devices, enabling said software access to hardware features.

With our definition of a platform out of the way, I’m going to give a few examples of popular platform in the marketplace and devices that they power:

  1. Google Android – Mobile, Tablet and TV’s
  2. Apple iOS – Mobile and Tablet
  3. Microsoft Windows Universal Platform – Mobile, Tablet, Console and PC
  4. Linux – Mobile, Tablet and PC

We will take a close look at the platforms over the next few episodes, it is important at the outset to outline what we covering and going forward how we create cross platform media content that works well on all devices.

In the next episode will take a closer look at the Android platform, its history and the tools we can use to create games, media and apps for the platform. Thanks for your time and keep checking back for updates!


Alec’s Introduction

Hello, my name’s Alec and I act as an artist and level designer for Danveria, come September I’ll be attending Hallam University to study Game Design. I also currently work nights, so I hover around at weird times and sleep all day.

As a team member I do what I’m told, like a good boy and over critique everyone else’s work (often sounding unnecessarily harsh but don’t mean to) because I want to make sure we’re making only the very best stuff.

Hobbies include playing music, playing games and watching stuff (TV dramas, films, anime, western cartoons, ASMR videos… I’ll watch anything). I own 2 electric guitars, 1 acoustic, 1 electric bass and 1 ukulele, I’m below or just average at all of them.

My ID on most things is JohnnyBigBalls but I use a lot of varied ones so here’s my most used:

Steam: JohnnyBigBalls
League: JohnnyBigBalls Bearclaw#11827
