How to Become a Successful Game Developer with Adobe Flash

With the advent of mobile app stores, there is more potential than ever for independent game developers to arise and become the next generation of game innovators. But how can small or even one-man teams possibly manage the technical complexities of developing on so many diverse platforms? Enter Adobe Flash, a visual development tool with the capability to export games to web, Android, and iOS.

Ross Przybylski, creator of Hero Mages, will share how he developed a successful cross-platform, multiplayer game and overcame the challenges of building a game engine, programming artificial intelligence, and designing a multiscreen interface using Flash.

This presentation was given for the Chicago Adobe User Group at Advent Learning on Michigan Ave on 6/18/2012

  1. Flash Games says:

    i have always wanted to build a flash game nice tutorial

  2. designed and built a game that I thought was really good (i enjoyed it!). But I found it didn’t get a lot of traction, and couldn’t understand – until I came across a youtube video showing someone playing the game, and I could tell that they really didn’t know what they were doing. It was harder than I thought to learn (obviously)

    I HAVE a tutorial, but it is something you have to click through. Nobody wants a “lesson”, and so I’ve learned the importance of introducing the game concepts as part of the game!

    So the game is out for a while, and maybe (just maybe) the learning curve is a little steeper than normal….

    So the question is – Should I go back and add that basic intro that shows you how to play the game, or is it too late since it has been launched for a long time?

    the game is dentedSkies and is available on my own game portal at

    Feedback welcome!

  3. 15 million has so far been funded to cover running costs for
    the next 10 years, enabling Helpp for Heroes

    For improving your business success rate, try noot to go into

    product or service, you should do some research to chjeck thee target market size, competitors and

    or service that you intend to offer.

    In Genesis 6:4 it states: ‘The Nephilim were on the earth in those days and
    - also afterward – when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them.
    And now that the developers have brought the feathery heroes to the internet, it is a fairly safe
    bet that Angry Birds online will continue to grow in popularity for many years to
    come. But if you fear your boss (rather than disliking and fearing) them
    then maybe you should take a minute to think of them as the unsung heroes they usually tend to be.

    Their son Micah Sanders wwho could communicate with and
    control technology. Students can now stop worrying
    abot their coursework writing assignment and concentrate their time and
    effor on other activities as we bring to them quality coursework papers.
    In this case, it would be posthumous pardons for leading human
    rights advocate Marcus Garvey and athletic great Jack Johnson, both of
    whom were victimized by the racist cultures of their day,
    and should have their reputations restored so that their unique legacies can be fully appreciated.

    All the best, Anthony.
