Following on the coattails of its successful GGS mobile gaming event in San Francisco, GWC held its 4th GGS event last Friday evening in the Microsoft Center in Central Seoul’s Gangnam district, where an audience of 100 game developers, investors, and distributors were given a taste of Korea’s latest innovators in the mobile game space. The event was organized by Wildcard, Korea’s leading social game platform and consultancy. The selected 10 games were judged by Crzyfish, PerfectWorld, App Annie, and Gamvil in a 2 hour event packed to the brim with some of the most promising new game innovators to come out of the Korean market.
NOKNOK responds to judge questioning.
All entrants of the event will receive a Silver Pass for a mini booth to exhibit their games at GMIC Beijing this May 7-8 in the China National Convention Center in Beijing. Additionally, each game will receive 3 Side Stage passes to the conference while a selected few will be given a Gold Pass to demo on-stage at the GGS Summit. In total, there will be 50 games invited to GMIC on May 7-8 from our GGS events in Chengdu, Beijing, San Francisco, Seoul, and Shanghai.
