Lunchtime Talk: Of Mice and Multiscreen

Where: Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, 1 Canon's Road, BS1 5TX

When: 15 March 2013 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Last year, Opposable Games released Clockwork Racers, an iOS racing game with a twist. The game allows players on multiple devices to compete against one another with a single shared screen for competitive racing fun with an old-school flavour. Navigating the uncharted waters of multi-screen mobile gaming, development of the game required overcoming a range of technical and design challenges, and this talk outlines some of those challenges, the solutions created, the opportunities presented, and offers a bite-sized post-mortem of the project as a whole.

This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week. Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday.

Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates. They normally take place at 1pm on Friday, are free and open to everybody who's interested in what we do. After the Talk, we also invite you to stay with us for the afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. We provide chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Our open afternoons close at 5pm. Let us know if you'd like a tour of the space and we'll be happy to show you around. Send an email to

Entry Cost: Free
