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.

An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen.

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
