Want to create a 2D game, using your HTML5 skills, familiar libraries, and the power of the cloud? Or add to what you learned in Developing 2D Games with HTML5? Making a "code once, deploy everywhere" multi-player 2D game with HTML5 is possible (and fun)! Watch popular experts Mickey MacDonald and Bryan Griffiths, as they continue their quest to do just that.

Explore helpful new tools and services, including Apache Cordova Tools for Visual Studio, Microsoft Azure Cloud Services, and Node.js. Round out the gameplay experience by adding new features and functionality, and see a proof of concept that shows how to turn the example into an online multiplayer RPG. Layer magic and sound, walk through good game design, update your battle system, and much more.

Take a look at where we left off in the previous course and where we want to go with the prototype. Investigate the new Apache Cordova tools for Visual Studios and how we can build and test for IOS, Android, and the Windows Store, all from Visual Studio.

00:20:53 - Lessons Learned / Development Planning
Look at lessons learned from creating the first version of our HTML5 RPG. Explore what went well and went wrong, and get tips and strategies for handling proper development planning.

01:05:25 - Rounding Out Gameplay
See some of the features and functionality we added to round out the gameplay of our example, and look at ways to really take the game to the next level. Topics include a simple quest system, adding "Title" and "Game Over" screens, and working with magic and sound.

01:52:15 - Multiplayer Proof of Concept
Multiplayer is huge in today’s games and, with our connected devices and the power of the cloud, we have a chance to create shareable experiences. Explore a proof of concept (POC) that shows how you could extend this example to an online multiplayer RPG, using Azure and Node.js to create a simple server, and then hook it all up by modifying our example to be a client
