GDC-Collage-1_webThis week’s GDC Next 2014 – a more intimate version of its San Francisco-based counterpart – featured talks conducted by some of the biggest players in the mobile gaming space. From Rovio to GREE, industry leaders shared their thoughts on how indie developers can reach a wide audience and most effectively monetize.

Aside from the numerous panels that took place over the course of the event, GDC Next also highlighted the hottest new indie games through the Media Indie Exchange Showcase (MIX). At MIX, attendees were able to demo innovative games that spanned from interactive puzzles to more immersive Oculus Rift assisted titles such as Homesick by Lucky Pause.

Not only did GDC showcase the newest technologies in gaming, but it also brought us back…way back, through the Video Game History Museum traveling exhibit, a fan favorite from past Game Developers Conferences. Spanning over 25 years of video game history, this exhibit shows just how far the industry has come and why many mobile game developers fell in love with games in the first place!

In addition to attending sessions and exhibits, the Fyber team loved seeing old faces and meeting-up with new ones. Did we miss you at the event? Meet us at Casual Connect Belgrade, Apps World London, and M1 Summit, or contact [email protected] to set up a meeting with us.
