Gods of Mobile!
Come hear these masters of mobile game development speak about their past successes and where they believe the mobile games industry is headed. Once again, YetiZen has pulled together monumental successes to share their secrets.
Also, we have a small announcement to make. The SF Game Dev Workshops will now be held in Google's offices in downtown San Francisco! We are very excited about this spacious location and we're looking forward to a great event.
Our speakers include:
Dave Castelnuovo, creator of Pocket God
After 40 updates, Dave will give a "mid-mortem" of Pocket God. After comics, toys, spin-off games, and numerous iterations Pocket God is still going strong! Dave will talk about how you can work from home and still keep a strong IP running successfully. Dave will share how a developer can leverage licensing and expand an IP as a brand while maintaining 100% ownership.
Andrej Nabergoj, creator of Talking Tom Cat
Andrej will talk about how apps have become a mainstream entertainment medium rivaling TV, Film and Video Games and how apps developers are becoming next generation entertainment companies. Additionally, Andrej will provide some insight into creating a brand "eco-system" that extends beyond the app space.
We're looking forward to seeing you there!
