BradyGames Official Map Apps

BradyGames, a premium strategy guide maker for AAA games, wanted mobile companion apps that were more interactive than a printed strategy guide. They asked Plow to develop the BradyGames Official Map Apps, featuring zoomable maps with clickable hotspots that displayed information and screenshots about locations, as well as tracked in-game item collection. Each app was developed for and approved by publishers of several AAA games, such as:

  • Aliens: Colonial Marines (Sega/Gearbox)

  • Batman: Arkham City (Warner Bros. Games/Rocksteady)

  • Borderlands 2 (2K Games/Gearbox)

  • Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (2K Games/Gearbox)

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops (Activision/Treyarch)

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts (Activision/Infinity Ward)

  • Dead Island (Deep Silver/Techland)

  • Dishonored (Bethesda/Arkane Studios)

  • L.A. Noire (Rockstar Games)

  • Saint's Row 4 (Deep Silver/Volition)

  • Skylanders: Swap Force (Activision/Vicarious Visions)

  • The Last of Us (Sony Computer Entertainment/Naughty Dog)

  • Tomb Raider (Square Enix/Crystal Dynamics)

Plow planned out the functionality and created a re-usable software template that still allowed for per-game features to be added. We developed all but one app with Unity and worked with BradyGames to ensure content was as accurate as possible, while navigating quick turn-around times to launch each app for iOS and Android by the release date of their game.
