How do you write a GDC blog post when every day was filled to capacity with secret meetings? Well dear reader, you're about to find out...
I join this battle of the blogs feeling slightly on the back foot. Yes, we were at the Games Developers Conference (GDC) in one of the greatest cities in the world, and yes, I had half of the A-Team with me, but unlike the blog I’m battling against, we weren’t exhibiting vTime in San Francisco. So what to share?
While our activities at the Wearable Technology Show were in front of the camera, the nature of our visit to GDC was very much behind closed doors. We had meetings. Lots of them. And while I’m not able to share the contents and upshot from each of them with you, I can say that we all went to our respective beds very happy indeed!
So, as 85% of our visit was not for public consumption, I’ve decided to share the bits that were. Some have absolutely nothing to do with vTime or GDC. Bear with me.
We arrived to weather not dissimilar to the weather that we flew 6500 miles to avoid. Despite the gloom, our time on the plane saw news of vTime’s Cardboard launch disseminate across the planet. Write-ups in Mashable, Digital Trends and Road to VR, and a prime feature on CNET spread the word of our VR social network spread far and further. Big smiles all round.
Tuesday at GDC welcomed Sony’s PlayStation VR keynote. We were announced as one of 230 developers working on titles for the platform. Hold on to your HMD, vTime for PSVR is coming soon!
And this is where my blog post loses the plot. All that remains is a sequence of random photographs taken throughout our week in San Francisco.
A pigeon came into my hotel room. Some readers may find the following video disturbing.
Martin and Paul swapped faces. The results were disconcerting.
And that's a wrap! I'm sure you'll agree that it's like you were there with us. Next time I agree to join a battle of the blogs, it will be when at least 60% of the day-to-day goings on are blogable. Until next time...
