BBC Multiplayer

During my time in BBC Children’s, I designed and implemented a multiplayer gaming API and approach. Wrapping the Smartfox engine, the API greatly simplified and streamlined both the creation and monitoring of multiplayer games, but also enforced a consistent language and approach for all multiplayer games created for CBBC.

The API was initially created for Flash games, but was later also ported for use in Unity and Javascript games too. I also built a single unified back end system in Java, that was platform agnostic, meaning games on any format (or even crossplatform games) would be supported.
