This month, Starloop were delighted to help their followers understand the ins and outs of Game Porting and Co-Development through a series of differentiated posts. The demand for game porting services has never been higher due to the wide variety of platforms available. Therefore, Starloop felt it was important to create a blog explaining the “The How’s and Why’s of Game Porting”.
Next up for Game Porting, Starloop’s Managing Director Jesus Bosch explained the service in-depth on video and they also released a case study on their port of Hello Guest from PC to Xbox One and iOS. Game Porting wasn’t the only hot topic this month, Starloop also delved into their Game Co-Development Services too. Outsourcing in video games offers several advantages. Starloop took this opportunity to educate their followers by writing a blog on those advantages and how co-development can help you save time and resources in delivering your title.
