Disney's Blast is a collection of over 100 games, activities, and stories that entertain and educate young children. As we began to introduce multiplayer turn-based games to a young audience, we decided to integrate Flash and Jabber to take advantage of superior streaming animation and reliable, scalable, real-time communication. Flash and Jabber together have not only enhanced user experience at Disney's Blast, but have also significantly reduced online gaming development time and deployment costs, in comparison to other multiplayer server solutions.
