How we created an AR game Apple fell in love with

Travis has spent almost 20 years helping create popular arcade titles with the likes of SEGA and Microsoft, including OutRun2Sonic & SEGA All-Stars series and Kinect Sports. He founded Dumpling with the belief that ‘everyone has an arcade in their pocket’ and now makes cool arcade games with a popular touch.

 

Dumpling’s first game Dashy Crashy reached 5M organic players and kept the team independent. The studio recently established itself as a pioneering developer of AR games with Smash Tanks and plan to release 3 AR games by the end of 2018, each focused on bringing players together around a shared space – think ‘future boardgames’.

 

Speech description:

Inspired by boardgames I play with my son, we set out to create a new type of game to play with family and friends – a rapid fire tour through 4 months prototyping and developing brand new Augmented Reality (AR) multiplayer game Smash Tanks!; from inspiration to developing with ARKit and numerous things we learnt along the way.
