At last year’s PAX East we met a number of really great iOS developers with new and interesting apps and products in the iOS space.
In just about two weeks the Third Annual PAX East Convention will kick off at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC) in Boston Massachusetts. There are still single day tickets available if you want to attend the show and the panel & event schedule is available on the PAX East website.
We’re hoping that iOS makes a strong showing again this year as well and it looks like we’re off to a great start. On Sunday April 8th (unfortunately also Easter Sunday) there is an interesting looking panel at 4pm called The Indie Rant: Indie Developers Gone Wild in the Naga Theatre.
Among the list of participants are a number of iOS devs:
- Alex Schwartz [Responsible for Smuggle/Snuggle Truck, Owlchemy Labs (Booth #760)]
- Jamie Gotch [Responsible for Fieldrunners, Subatomic Studios]
- Ichiro Lambe [Responsible for AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!, Dejobaan Games]
- Andy Nealen [Responsible for Osmos, Hemisphere Games]
Several popular iOS titles are also being featured in the Boston Indie Showcase (Booth #670) including:
Bean’s Quest Final
Super Crate Box
Tin Man Games are returning to PAX East (Booth #507) showing of their Gamebook Adventure series of apps. Playdek will be displaying their upcoming collectable card game, Nightfall. George Rothrock, Director of Product and Business Development for Playdek will also be speaking at the “Trading Card Games: Delivering the Digital Promise” panel on Sunday, April 8th from 3:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. in the Merman Theatre.
Halfbrick Studios (Booth #684) returns again this year, so hopefully we can get a sneak peak at the upcoming Jetpack Joyride update. SRRN Games (Booths #505, #606) Will be showing off playable demos of the updated versions of their popular JRPGs Ash and Ash II: Shadows. Night Owl Games (Booth #1137), developer of Dungeon Overlord, will be debuting a new mobile app at PAX East which allows players to manage many aspects of the hardcore strategy MMO, from their iPhone.

We’ve already scheduled meetings with some members of the iOS development community, but there is still plenty of room for more.
