Game Developer's Conference 2009 Roll Call

So who is going to the Game Developer's conference (http://www.gdconf.com/). It's in San Francisco March 23-27th and will also correspond to the Independent Games Festival (http://www.igfmobile.com/) where all those iPhone games were nominated.

Blake and I will be there. I was just curious to see which of the iPhone gaming developers here are going.

I wish. Budget, family and fear in loathing what Apple may be up to with it's mobile gaming plans keep me in Seattle with my wet, refreshing, cold air and drip coffee that would give most people the scoots.

I wish I could go. There are a ton of speakers I'd love to listen to. Even though I'm a published developer, I'm only 17, so I'm not sure if it would be practical for me to go yet. And the money is also a killer. Maybe if SciFly II is successful I'll go when I am 18 with those funds.

I would have loved to have heard Wolfgang's talk on his pre-pass lighting model to name one of many...

GDC iPhone Dev Mixer?

Hey! It's be great to have a night where us smaller devs and media buddies (that means you Arnold =) ) get together and ahve some drinks, shoot the shit, etc.

Anyone interested? I'm going to ping some devs and see what sort of response I can get...and see what night works for everyone. We'd love to meet y'all!

Oh! and let's call it the Apple Developer's Union! Hahaha!

Damn I would love to go and show off my new game in development

I'd love to be there, but the consulting business has me tied down this time.

Maybe next year... by then I should have the chance to release another game or two into the wild Sitting down to talk about the market, tools, and techniques over beer would be a lot of fun!

I went in 2007 to make a pitch but I'll have to skip again this year. I need to actually work on the games.
