Description

Here we took the existing OL Game Service and had to invent some cool tech to get it ready for both TVs (with the OnLive Game System) and touch devices (tablet & mobile devices). We got the service running effectively on iOS and Android devices (partnering up with HTC).

Media Praise

OnLive demonstrations were convincing enough that developers like Rockstar even agreed to redesign their games around an exclusive, tablet-specific touch interface that will be exclusive to OnLive. Over 25 games on the platform will be touch-enabled, OnLive said, including a special version of Rockstar's game, L.A. Noire.

OnLive is taking another big step in its evolution, with the launch of apps for mobile phones and handsets to make any device a gaming device. Users can now play high-quality games on devices with a fraction of the processing power included in high-end gaming PCs.
