Project Ditto

Collaborating with Google Stadia to build a game
on the Stadia platform.

We are Team Ditto.

We are five creative minds from the Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University, 
who are designing a game that takes full advantage of Google Stadia’s State Share feature.

We are working with Google Stadia!

Throughout the semester, we will be building and testing prototypes that will try to centralize the state share feature as a core gameplay mechanic, and from these prototypes create a final demo whose gameplay is uniquely suited not only for state share, but the Google Stadia platform as well.

Google Stadia

Stadia is a cloud gaming service operated by Google that offers players the ability to play games at 4K resolution with 60 fps all from the comfort of their personal devices (whether that’s their smartphone or their laptop). Aside from allowing people to play games remotely, Stadia has many unique features that seek to also bridge the distance between streamers and audience such as the Crowd Play feature, which will allow streamers to create virtual queues for their audience to join games with them.

State Share

State Share is a groundbreaking aspect of the Stadia platform that will allow players to share 30 second snapshots of a given game save, allowing players to jump into each other’s game saves at the click of a button.
