Green Throttle™ Games Launches Developer Program

Powerful Tools and 1,000 Controller Giveaway Deliver Major Opportunity For Game Creators

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Throttle Games, a new video game publisher and maker of the Atlas Bluetooth analog controller, today announced the launch of a new program and portal that is making it easier than ever for mobile game developers to tap into the growing market of Android tablets and smartphones. Green Throttle's new initiatives give developers the tools to make their games more exciting, a new destination to showcase their games and the ability to bring mobile games to larger screens and new audiences. Click here to have a first look at how developers are utilizing Green Throttle Games already.

With the launch of the developer program and the availability of developer controllers, Green Throttle is offering their Atlas controllers along with the Green Throttle SDK to users of the Corona Labs SDK, Marmalade SDK, Unity development platform, Amazon development platform and indie development studios. The first 100 qualified developers in each of the above categories to apply for the developer program will receive two controllers and custom support for each middleware solution or hardware platform.

Green Throttle brings the power of game publishing to the hands of developers with a very flexible platform that allows game makers to leverage the lower-costs of mobile and web game development while delivering a "console-like" experience with both true analog control for fluid gameplay and multiplayer capabilities to make the gaming experience social again.

"We're here to create new opportunities for developers that help enhance not only their games, but also their visibility within the market," said Stacey Hirata, gaming industry veteran and Head of Publishing and Developer Relations for Green Throttle Games.

How Does the Developer Program help Developers?

Access to the Developer Portal

  • Developers download Green Throttle's Software Development Kit (SDK).
  • Integrate SDK into their game to add support for multiple wireless controllers.
  • Purchase Green Throttle's Atlas controller to test game compatibility.
  • Submit to Green Throttle for review after submitting to Google Play.

Developers Get Paid

Access to the Atlas Controller

  • On the heels of its first shipments, Green Throttle's Atlas Controller ties the mobile-to-console experience together and will be an integral part of game development with Green Throttle's SDK.

Supported tablets and mobile phones can connect with an HDMI cable to a television so that gamers can play console-like games from their mobile device. The controller's technology allows developers to create a console-quality gaming experience at the low cost of mobile gaming. The Atlas controller is priced at $49.95 on Green Throttle's e-commerce site, making this a very accessible accessory for the millions of mobile devices shipping this year. IDC has reported that Samsung alone shipped 56 million smartphones in Q3 2012, and 10 million Android tablets from Samsung, Amazon and Asus were sold through the channel. Once developers integrate Green Throttle's SDK into their game and get their hands on Atlas controllers, they are directed to Green Throttle's App page via mobile device where they can download the Green Throttle Arena App, Controller Service (which runs behind the scenes and helps controllers connect to the phones), and sample Green Throttle developed games. 

Developers

Major gaming publishers and developers are revving up their mobile offerings with support for the Green Throttle Atlas controller. CMUNE will be creating a version of their hit Facebook First-Person-Shooter (FPS) game "UberStrike" for Green Throttle. "UberStrike", which recently launched Android and iPad is Facebook's largest 3D FPS game with more than 8 million players and 1.4 million Monthly Active Users on Facebook alone.

"We are very excited to provide the 'UberStrike' audience with Green Throttle Atlas controllers featuring true analog control," said Ludovic Bodin, CEO of CMUNE, maker of UberStrike, Facebook's No.1 first-person-shooter game. "With Green Throttle, our players will have an entirely new controller-enabled gameplay experience."

These developers and publishers are joining an accomplished group of indie developers supporting Green Throttle, including nWay, Free Range Games, Mercenary Technology and Monstrous with others to be announced soon.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The person is connected through multiple devices, wearables, at home, on the road, and in multiple locations, sometimes simultaneously...

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Big Data, cloud, analytics, contextual information, wearable tech, sensors, mobility, and WebRTC: together, these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems.

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
