Microsoft, Nokia and Unity are hosting a series of Porting Days across the UK, with one taking place in Glasgow on Saturday 29th of March at the Glasgow School of Art’s Digital Design Studio, at The Hub, Pacific Quay.
Attendees will receive a token for free registration to the Microsoft App Store. According to Microsoft:
Over the last 12 months, Windows 8 and Windows Phone market share has increased rapidly. More and more consumers are purchasing Windows Phones and tablets and we are seeing amazing success on the Windows ecosystem from game developers with titles such as:
* Reindeer Round-Up from Christian West – over 10,000 paid downloads in just 8 days following his port at the London Unity porting event
* Wilson’s Adventure from Richard Hawkins – getting over 148k downloads in 3 weeks since his port at the London Unity porting event
Now it’s your turn to share in the success. Bring your laptop plus existing game along to one of our porting days and we’ll help you port your title in one day!
Click here to register. There are just 100 places per venue available on a first come, first served basis. A maximum of two people from each studio can attend, and each person must register individually.
There will be hands-on advice and Unity experts to help you port existing or new mobile games to the Windows Phone or Windows Store. If you don’t have the necessary hardware to port to Windows Phone or Windows Store, hardware will be available on the day.
There will be a small number of PC laptops running all the necessary developer tools and will provide Windows QuickStart kits for iOS developers (which will run Windows 8 Pro on MAC OS via Parallels Desktop 9).
This event is for developers who have developed a title using Unity and published to iOS App Store, Google Play or the Amazon or other App Stores.
