News, Other, Uncategorized » Casual Connect Gaming Show Highlights!

Casual Connect was this past week. It is a gaming conference featuring the type of games that people play on this site. In addition to games a lot of the conference is devoted to the business side of game development and distribution. Game engine companies like Unity, ad companies like Radium one and platforms such as Facebook were all in attendance vying for the attention of developers.

Here is a countdown of the most interesting and outrageous things at the show.

Rupaul has her own game!

Kim Kardashian has one so why not…




You could play Tetris on the side of a building!

Shout to Fyber for the GIANT sized Tetris competition!



Oculus Rift might make you woozy…

I finally got a chance to check out the oculus. The 3D virtual reality tech is cool, however it is very intense and I thought I was going to lose my lunch just walking down a virtual 3D hallway. Clearly in the future this tech will be awesome, but for now carry a barf bag when you play…just in case. And unfortunately you do look kind of goofy wearing the “thrilling futuristic” headgear.

Chartboost is just a nursery school for adult nerds!

On the surface Chartboost offer great ways for users and app developers to discover and monetize their mobile games, but it turns out that their new offices is just one giant playground! Most tech offices feature beer pong and and snacks, but Chartboost has giant legos, a ball bit and a dinosaur.

Game Development must be hard, cause the developers sure drink a lot!!

As with most Game Industry events there are tons of parties, this Casual Connect was no different. App Annie,  Inmobi, Pandora, Fyber and Cashplay all sponsored events with DJs, bands, food and plenty of booze!
