What are the gaps and how do we close them?

HTML5 Workshop


LEVEL: Intermediate


Mobile GameArch is a two year project, funded by the European Commission and initiated by a group of people concerned by the future of the mobile games industry in Europe: once the king of the pond and now lagging behind the USA, especially Silicon Valley and South-East Asia.

The project aims to identify the main barriers to growth for the European mobile games industry and to find concrete actions to remove these barriers and allow the growth of a strong, healthy and competitive industry.

The first year of the Mobile GameArch project found that device fragmentation could be addressed by middleware and/or HTML5. Some commercial barriers could possibly be addressed by getting the operators back into the value chain for games, as suppliers of Cloud services. Cloud services also promise a device independence which certainly has implications for the games industry.
