If you think that shared-screen multiplayer is a thing of the past, think again. Creative use of tablet technology - a large interactive canvas with room for multiple players - allows designers to invent new forms of shared play, which players are embracing.
Indie developer Alistair Aitcheson takes an in-depth look at how shared-device multiplayer is being transformed on tablet. He looks at the design opportunities of using players as physical obstacles, the play possibilities when the device is no longer the referee, and how games culture is once again embracing truly social face-to-face gaming.
The Evolve track is the section of the Develop conference dedicated to cutting-edge technology, design and business models. An exciting opportunity to show shared-tablet multiplayer as an exciting and socially relevant area for gaming!
