With the recent release of Windows 8 for PCs and Tablets, Halfbrick have also released their two biggest titles on the platform as well — Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, and I had a part in the design!

Every game platform has its quirks — Xbox Live Arcade has specific menu requirements, Android devices have the numerous resolutions and processors to deal with, but Windows 8 has some unique additions that differentiate it from the competition. These additions also require a good designer mind to work with.

I’ve written up a big blog post about it over at Gamasutra, and the video above shows off some of the cool stuff too. It was cool to work on, and I don’t get much chance to talk about some of the inner workings of my job that much!
