“Games as a Platform”
Brad is back! He and Marco talk about games as a platform. If you're a fan of a "game series" like Pokemon or Dark Souls, then you'll definitely know what we're talking about. What makes a game a good platform? What are the advantages and pitfalls? All that and more on this episode!
A game is a platform when it continuously builds content on top of a pre-laid-out system (think of Pokemon or BattleCON).
A game must first be a platform before it can become a service. A game that is not mutable, updateable, or extendable is usually hard to turn into a service.
One must remember that there is a certain expectation to be met, but this must be balanced with a healthy dose of innovation to keep a platform fresh.
