Almost every major publisher and developer in the game industry is dedicating a major part of their effort on mobile games. Realizing that there is a huge foreseeable demand for mobile game developers, Motorola has formed a partnership with GamePipe Labs at the University of Southern California. The purpose of this partnership is to provide a platform to train the next generation of mobile game developers using design principles unique to mobile games. The authors describe the process, challenges, and results of this effort from both the technical and design aspects.
