GameDevDrinkUp Wrap-up - LA & Bay Area

Hello, fellow GameDevDrinkUp peeps:

If you attended last week’s GameDevDrinkUp, then you know what a great turnout we had. Not only was LA’s 2nd event more successful than the last, but the Bay Area’s 1st event had a mighty turnout as well. Both LA and SF had a combined total of over 150 attendees! We couldn’t have expected a better showing, so thank you all who made it out, and special thanks to Warren Price for spearheading the Bay Area meet-up.

Attendees from both cities represented 55 different companies such as Visceral, Ubisoft, Lucas Arts, Google, Destructoid, Double Fine, Activision, ThatGameCompany, Zynga, Naughty Dog, GolinHarris (Nintendo), and SCEA Santa Monica.

As many of you may have noticed, we put technology to use and placed iPad’s at each event’s check-in stations allowing both parties to communicate via FaceTime. Several of you put your creative juices to work and began scribbling down messages in reverse to chat – how clever!

Thanks in part to Andrew Odella (Naughty Dog), Matthew Cappiello (SCEA Santa Monica) and Annie Lohr (Microsoft) we were able to raffle out prizes that included games, T-shirts and point cards. Big thanks to all of you!

We are in the works for our next GameDevDrinkUp which will take place during The E3 Expo. That’s right. We’ll be bringing both groups together at one central location during the biggest industry event of the year. More details to come soon, so stay tuned.

**July GameDevDrinkUp will resume post-The E3 Expo
