3 What Is A Gaming Platform? Specific combination of electronic components or computer hardware which in conjunction with software, allows a video game to operate It means: PC Game - involves interaction of player with a Personal Computer connected to a Video Monitor Consoles – Specialized Electronic Devices connected to Television Sets Lets See Further----

4 Categories Of Game Platforms PC Gaming – Windows, MAC, Linux Or Any Other Systems Consoles – Microsofts Xbox 360, Sonys PS3,… Arcades – PAC-MAN, Pong, Galaxy Game,… Hand-Held Devices – Nintendos 3Ds,… Mobile Gaming – Android, iOS,… Online/Web – Facebook,… And Others…

5 Consider The Following Platforms: PC Console

6 PC Platform High Processing Power as compared to other Gaming Systems Better Hardware & Scope for Upgradation Apart from Gaming, its more than a Multitasking Machine Supports Wide Range Of Peripheral Devices – Touch-screens, Motion-Controllers, … Games On PC benefit from: Higher Screen Resolutions – 1920*1080 or above Higher Frame-Rate Increased Draw Distance EX : Games like Crysis & Battlefield 3 literally fumed out the consoles due to their Heavy & Immense Graphics, such Graphics Generation becomes only possible on a PC.. Crysis 2Battlefield 3

7 Consoles They are Dedicated Video Game Machines – An Interactive Computer – producing a Video Signal – that can be used with a display device – Television, Monitor etc.. Simply Plug n Play Devices Consists of Wired/Wireless Gamepad/Controller End-User does not require any Hardware Knowledge Uses Specialized Hardware Architechure Latest Consoles offer services like – Internet, Optical Media, Screen Capture & Much More.. EX : Microsoft Xbox 720 offers players to capture their Game-play Footage which players can upload and share with friends.. Players can also watch videos of different Video File Formats

8 History Of Video Game Consoles Following sections show the different Generations of Video Game Consoles: 1 st Generation (1972 – 1977) 2 nd Generation (1976 – 1983) 3 rd Generation (1983 – 1990) 4 th Generation (1987 - 1995) 5 th Generation (1993 – 2004) 6 th Generation (1998 – 2005) 7 th Generation (2005 – 2011) 8 th Generation (2013..)

9 8 th Generation Consoles Technological Advancements took place rapidly especially after 4 th Generation Todays devices are highly integrated with other Media and Increased Connectivity EX : Wii U is the first of the 8 th Generation Consoles currently available in the market. OUYAOUYA, a Kickstarter-funded Android-based game console, which was released on June 25, 2013KickstarterAndroid Others include – Microsofts Xbox ONE, Sonys PlayStation 4, Nvidia Shield … OUYA Nvidia Shield

10 Examples Of Games On Different Platforms Call Of Duty & Crysis 2 On PC FIFA 13 & Gears Of War On – Xbox & PS3 Respectively Sonic-The Hedgehog & Angry Birds On Nintendo 3DS & Android Smart- Phone Respectively

11 Now, lets see – Tales Of Mushroom Land Game Info Game Platform

12 A Brief About Our 2D Game Name – Tales Of Mushroom Land Genre – Casual Platformer Team Size – 2 Persons : 1 Programmer & 1 Artist Development Software – Game Maker : 8.1 Pro Level Structure – 2 Levels With Main-Menu, Pause Menu, Storyboard Section Of 5 Screens, Controls Screens, Credits Screen, Custom Options Screen Scope For Expansion : YES Deadline – 45 Days

13 Best Suitable Platform For The Game Based On Above Game Facts & Game Structure: We had considered Two Platforms: PC Consoles However, best suitable platform for game : PC (Windows) In-Game Screenshots:

14 Why – PC Platform

15 Why No To - Console Consoles like Microsoft Xbox 360 are Very Expensive (approx. 25,000 INR) They are Non Up-gradable Ex : At The Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference, Feb 2013 ---- 60% of Players REFUSED to buy or were AGAINST Consoles, Because…. New Consoles Play Only Brand New Games There Is No Support For Old Games Moreover,… Game for a Console requires Special/Extra Type Of Coding We would have to make use of development software like XNA by Microsoft which is very VAST as compared to Game-Maker 8.1. An extra Programmer would have been required Developing a very short game for Consoles – spending so much resources – Increased Time - Doesnt sound a very nice deal (At least to me), …..

16 Extra Added Feature In The Game A Candy for Gamepad Lovers: Extended Gamepad/Controller Support For The Game Game works with any USB Plug & Play Gamepad/Controller Ex : Microsoft Xbox 360 USB Controller For PC, Logitech Gamepad F710, Enter E-GPV Gamepad, And Others… Logitech F710 Gamepad For PC Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller For PC
