Cyril and Thorsten will share what the team of 12 developers learned during the development and are still learning now that the game is live in exploitation.


Attendees will learn many tips and solutions that Ubisoft Blue Byte implemented to develop a multiplayer cooperative experience for a mainstream audience and for location based VR venues, from a design to a business perspective.
