Wednesday night Touch Arcade and MacHeist held the iPhone Launch Party 2009 during Apple's World Wide Developers Conference in San Francisco. The RSVP list included industry celebrities (such as Steve Wozniak and "DVD Jon" Johansen), a large number of notable iPhone developers, and fans of iPhone gaming in general.
The party served as the launch event for a number of great iPhone titles as well as a demo opportunity for the recently announced Doom Resurrection.
Games demonstrated or introduced at the event:
- Grunts, Warp Gate, TrackZ, Thor,Flick Baseball - Freeverse
- iSamurai [$0.99]- Toy Kite Software
- Real Racing [$9.99] - Firemint
- Doom Resurrection - Escalation Studios
A particularly entertaining part of the evening was Monodomo's demonstration of their iPhone beat-box app, bChamp [$0.99]. Have a look at the raw beat-boxing action that unfolded at the event.
The Launch Party 2009 seems to have been a blast for all involved and Touch Arcade is very happy to have been involved in making it happen. We thank all that were in attendance for being part of the event.
