GDC in San Francisco is the main event for everyone in the mobile games industry. It kicks off in San Francisco on March 25th and we’re happy to be there for our 5th GDC. In the time since my first GDC things have changed from people saying “there are games for iPhone?” to “we’re going mobile-first.” It’s been an amazing transformation.

 

Party with the mobile folks.

 

148Apps will also be co-hosting the Pocket Gamer party on Monday night, the first night of GDC. All are welcome and there’s even an open bar. Sign-up for the party now and we hope to see you there (don’t forget your 2×2 app icon stickers).

 

Indie Mobile Speed Pitching Session

 

In partnership with eight other awesome mobile sites, we are also trying something a little new this year. In an effort to make sure we save time for the small indie mobile game developers, we are co-hosting a speed pitch event. The idea is similar to a speed dating event where there are a group of tables set up and the prospects go from table to table. In a speed-pitch event, developers go in sequence pitching their games to mobile game writers. If you are interested, you can get more info and sign-up at the Eventbrite page. We are co-hosting this with all of the biggest mobile sites out there and there’s no cost, we’re just looking forward to seeing a bunch of your great games.

 

And meet with us one-on-one

 

If you’d like to schedule a one-on-one meeting with us, send us an email at gdc at 148apps.com. Please include your full contact info and a bit of info about your company and games. Also include what days and times are best for you to meet.

I’ll be there along with Rob and Carter to cover all that GDC has to offer.
