DEVELOP Liverpool and the Indie Showcase

Friday, 25 November 2011 0 comments

Yesterday afternoon, Paw Print Games attended the Indie afternoon of the DEVELOP Liverpool conference. Hear we heard from various speakers, from single man development studios to Phillip Oliver, co-founder of Blitz Games with 200+ employees. While all the speakers gave some interesting insight/tips on being a successful developer, the most inspirational talk was certainly Phllip's which was essentially the story of Blitz games, starting with two kids coding in their bedrooms, setting themselves goals (getting a magazine listing, getting a published game, getting a boxed game, getting number one in the charts, getting an office, and so on).

After the DEVELOP afternoon, we attended, and ran a stall, at the Indie Showcase, which was an event over the road from DEVELOP where various companies in the North West of England were given the opportunity to do a showcase about their company. We turned up with a dozen different devices, ranging from iPhone, iPad, Palm mobiles to Nook e-Readers to Android tablets to BlackBerry PlayBooks and more, and demonstrated our various titles running across the board. Our stall was well received and a lot of interest was gained for our in-house cross-platform engine which targets many platforms including: PC, MacOSX, iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry BBX, WebOS, Bada, NaCl (Google Native Client), Pandora.

Thank you for everyone that came by to see us and thank you to Clemens from SetGo Games and the guys at Rebel Play for organizing the event (along with free beers, food and service!).

Our experiences so far with the PlayBook have been very good; high performance hardware, responsive screen and an ever improving software line-up. We look forward to seeing KAMI RETRO available to download on the AppWorld store and will let you know when it is available for download.

When we released KAMI RETRO back in March we were please to be featured as Game of the Week, and to have since been put in the New and Noteworthy, Greatest Platformers and now Stylish Games categories reminds us how hard we worked in order to put out a title on the saturated iOS market which still stands out. We are still getting around 20,000 downloads per day on Android, and are certainly happy to be next door to Whale Trail on the AppStore this week!
