Video: How BioWare connected players' stories via the Dragon Age Keep

At GDC 2015 BioWare's Leah Shinkewski shows how the company aggregated players' data from multiple Dragon Age games across multiple platforms and present it via the Dragon Age Keep.

In many games, particularly BioWare's games, choices matter.

At GDC 2015, BioWare's Leah Shinkewski revealed how the company moved beyond the traditional "import your save" approach to aggregate players' choice data from multiple Dragon Age games across multiple platforms, then present it to players in a digestible online format: the Dragon Age Keep.

From corrupt save game files to platform-based restrictions, Shinkewski drew on specific examples to showcase how the Dragon Age Keep's unique web-based approach successfully solved for cross-platform and generation challenges while creating the opportunity to engage with fans before, during, and after a game launch.

Her talk was fascinating and informative; if you missed it live, don't skip your chance to now watch it completely free via the official GDC Vault YouTube channel!
