With how fast this year is racing by I can't believe I'm about to post this, but E3 in Los Angeles is next week, and then WWDC in San Francisco is the week after that. We're going to be at both events, and we should be in store for two weeks of non-stop iOS gaming news. Or, that's the plan, anyway.


Developers who want to meet up with us to show off your new, exciting, or otherwise interesting projects should get in contact with me ASAP! Keep in mind you don't need to technically be attending either of the two conventions, if you're local to Los Angeles or San Francisco we can still meet up.

  1. If you haven't already, set up Google Talk.
  2. Solve this CAPTCHA to get my Google Talk email address.
  3. Add me to your buddy list, I'll authorize you as soon as I'm available, and we can chat and confirm a time.
  4. Please do not email for meeting requests. Demand is too high for meeting scheduling to keep multiple slots open while we figure things out by email.

That seems simple enough, and vastly preferable to playing email tag to secure a meeting time. Also, keep in mind that I'm in the Chicago area in Central time, so the best time to catch me is during the American business day as I'm always at my computer then.

If you're attending WWDC, but don't necessarily have a new game to show off and still want to meet us, come to our WWDC party! The whole TouchArcade crew will be there and we'll have an open bar for all game developers and TouchArcade fans willing to trade us a business card for the bracelet that turns on the free beer.

Here's the details:

  • WHEN: Wednesday June 13th, 7:00 PM until they kick us out.
  • WHERE: Bin 55 in the lobby of the Marriott Marquis at 55 4th St.
  • WHY: Because there's way more cool people we want to meet than we have meeting time slots for!

If our party plans sound vaguely similar to those from GDC, that's because they are! This sort of thing is almost turning into TouchArcade tradition, which is a very awesome thing. We're going to try to do something a little different this year though, if you're an iOS developer interested in sponsoring the party… Shoot us an email at tips@toucharcade.com and we can chat.

    Awesome news, the GDC party was a ton of fun.

    Will TouchArcade be at any of the parties or other events in LA next week? I'm not going to E3 but would love to meet up. I know there's a Pocket Gamer event.

    It's hard to believe only a few years ago there was hardly enough news to bother checking TouchArcade on a daily basis.  When I got my iPod Touch (now retired, but keeping company with a household of iPhone and iPad users) you guys were the first site I found.  It seems that first year you guys were hunting down developers, now the demand has outpaced your ability to keep up.  Congrats on coming so far, both you and the industry.  I won't be in Chicago, but you know I'll be glued to your feed.  Thanks for the hard work, the awesome party I won't be attending seems like a fitting reward. 

    Now, if we could only get E3 to find it's way to Minneapolis next year...
