Educational game developer NOMAD Apps recently developed a new version of its math learning app, AWEsum!*, to take advantage of the features available with Intel® All-in-One (AIO) devices that run Windows* 8. The AIO devices consist of an 18- to 27-inch monitor with a motherboard behind the screen. They are powerful, portable, and allow users to do everything they would do with a PC. An AIO device can stand up like a PC monitor or lie flat on a table, so more than one user can interact with it at a time.
This case study examines the process that game developer Marmalade followed as it created an electronic version of Hasbro’s classic board game, RISK: The Game of Global Domination. The game plays well on desktop computers and 2 in 1s, but it really shines on All-in-One (AIO) PCs, which incorporate advanced graphics and multitouch technology with a a high-definition screen.
