The annual Game Developers Conference will be arriving this month like always, and we will be there like always as well. This year is already shaping up to be a pretty awesome one with some of the games we will be going hands-on with while running around like crazy. So here is an idea of what we will be checking out during GDC and, of course, if there’s anything you want us to scope out or have questions you want us to ask a specific developer, do let us know.
One of the stories from GDC 2015 we had to sit on was our interview with Niantic Labs about their upcoming title called Endgame. Well today we can finally talk about everything including a bit of the gameplay we saw for Endgame: Proving Grounds. For those of you not familiar with these developers, Niantic Labs are the folks behind the rather unique location-based game Ingress. So what is Endgame: Proving Grounds about? We sat down with Niantic Labs during GDC 2015 to find out all about it.
Madfinger Games announced their next title just before GDC 2015 started and it was another zombie shooter called Unkilled. The company was on hand at the Unity booth at GDC 2015 showing off a technical demo of Unkilled which we decided to swing by in order to get a little hands-on time with the early build of Unkilled that they had on display.
While one of the stories we had to wait with talking about till today was Mortal Kombat X, the other title we had to sit on until now was our hands-on time with Spacetime Studios upcoming MOBA Call of Champions. We have already gone into great detail about this game when we had our pre-GDC 2015 interview with Spacetime Studios but we didn’t get to do any sort of hands-on with the game itself until GDC 2015 actually started.
One of the games we were very eager to try out during GDC 2015 was NetherRealms’ Mortal Kombat X for Android devices. When we got to where the game was being shown, it was in a nice dark conference room behind closed doors with both the console version as well as the mobile version being available to play. Without wasting any time we went over to the table where all the tablets were, sat down, and began playing Mortal Kombat X while talking to one of the developers working on the project.
Noodlecake Games may be publishing Glorkian Warrior tomorrow but the company has a few other games heading our way in the near future after that. One of those games is RAD Boarding and as it happens the developers were on hand at GDC 2015 which means we got to do a little hands-on with RAD Boarding.
Game development studio Inkle has been put in charge of Steve Jackson’s gamebook series Sorcery!, having already published two of them onto Google Play. We had a chance to meet up with Inkle to talk about the Sorcery! franchise and, more importantly, get some hands-on time with the next installment heading our way very soon, Sorcery! 3.
GDc is a great event to sit down with developers of all sizes to talk about current and future titles heading to our world of mobile gaming on Android. We got to sit down with Com2uS this year to take a look at what is on the way in the near future as well as what we can expect to see 6-8 months down the road.
Announced a couple of days before the start of GDC 2015, Paradox Interactive had a copy of their new sequel to Knights of Pen and Paper on hands during GDC 2015 to go hands-on with. The firs game was a lot of fun so fondling the sequel ahead of time was high on our priority list of things to do after walking up a massive hill to get to our meeting with Paradox Interactive.
