Warner Bros, Storm8, KIXEYE, GREE and Immersion speak up for Pocket Gamer's San Francisco Mobile Mixer

Warner Bros, Storm8, KIXEYE, GREE and Immersion speak up for Pocket Gamer's San Francisco Mobile Mixer
On Tuesday, the Pocket Gamer Mobile Mixer returned to San Francisco, at new location Vessel, and generously sponsored by our friends at GREE and Immersion.

Uniting veteran industry leaders with emerging talent, the night combined panel discussions, presentations, networking, food, drink, and music into a heady cocktail that mixed business with pleasure.

Featured speakers on the night included: Mike Lu, senior director of product at GREE, Nate Jones, VP digital games at Warner Bros. Games, Quincy Yang, head of business development at Storm8, Caryl Shaw, executive producer at KIXEYE, and Bob Heubel of Immersion.

This top quality line-up of panellists discussed;


  • When do you know the time is right to partner with a publisher?

  • What international trends are worth watching?

  • Is the pricing on in-app purchases way out of whack with other platforms?

  • Will there ever be a viable third platform for mobile?


Snap happy

As always, we had a photographer capturing the best moments of the night, a selection of which are presented below.

Why not head on over to Facebook to check out the full set, so you can tag yourself in the photos?
