How Defend The Dome was built.

Defend the Dome was a promotion site for the Atlanta Falcons and Ford with over 6000 people signing up and 10,000 visits per day for a website designed for Atlanta and Georgia fans only. The site features two games, Drive the Distance, and Defend the Dome Challenge.

The talk will cover:

  • How the assets for a 38mb website where managed so users still had a "good" experience
  • How the site was architected
  • How traditional flash timeline animation with action script control
  • How video was incorporated and used to simulate a 3d experience
  • How high scores/signup was implemented and reduce spoofing / hacking
  • How the keyboard sequencers and timers where built and we could control the easy/difficulty of the games
  • The lessons we learned
