The ISS provides Dragon Age fans with an online cinematic overview of the choices they’ve made in the Dragon Age games. Though simple in concept, building a super low-bandwidth (~100x less than video), interactive, localizable experience for every screen (mobile, tablet, desktop, and console), while empowering the creative team to deliver top-notch results pushed the boundaries of what’s possible with modern web tech.

This talk will explore the challenges, technologies, processes, and results of the project. Topics include: resolution and aspect ratio independence, device performance strategies, creative tooling and process, localization approaches, CreateJS, and the HTML5 canvas.


Discuss the technologies, solutions, and processes used to build the Dragon Age ISS.
