This year at GDC 2012, prepare for a Yeti invasion the likes of which has never been seen before! YetiZen will be bringing you the biggest bash you’ve ever seen at GDC on Wednesday, March 7 starting at 8pm at Ruby Skye. That’s right in the heart of Union Square. Along with a cavalcade of acrobats, contortionists, belly dancers, and painted models… attendees will also enjoy premium complimentary cocktails to satisfy even the most Yeti-sized thirst. Tracer and DJG-Squared will also be there spinning the best beats, and with YetiZen’s network of over 6,000 game developers, there will be no shortage of fine and enthusiastic company. And who loves to party more than game developers! YetiZen has also hired a famous artist to create a gaming mural to be auctioned off, and the proceeds will go to PennyArcade’sChild’sPlaycharity.
And that’s not all! YetiZen will also be holding its second annual Get-In-The-Game Pitch Competition earlier in the day between 2-4 pm, judged by some of the biggest names in the games and investment world like Michael Chang (Director of Corporate Development at EA), Terence Fung (Corporate Development at Zynga), Rob Coneybeer (Shasta Ventures), Michael Klein (Canaan partners) and YetiZen’s very own Sana Choudary (CEO and all around gaming guru). If you’ve ever wanted to be a part of the next big wave in mobile and social game development, or if you simply want to connect with an incredible audience of investors, entrepreneurs and game industry CEOs, you won’t want to miss this.
Come and marvel at the innovative games on display and cheer for the company you most want to see win a slot in the YetiZen Accelerator Program. We guarantee you’ll be amazed by the amazing offerings on display (not to mention the wit and wisdom of our superstar panel of judges)!
Be on the lookout for our strikingly lovely agents who will be in the courtyard at 4th and Howard. Not only will you get free energy drinks but YetiZen will also have console games set up for you to play with your friends for the entire week. So even if you can’t make either event, you won’t miss out on the opportunity to connect and party with us. Just be prepared to receive a big ol’ Yeti-hug from our enthusiastic team!
Keep an eye out for our party fliers all week. For more information on what is sure to be this year’s hottest party, please visit http://yetizen.com/images/GDCParty.jpg, and to learn more about this year’s pitch competition, check out http://yetizen.com/images/GDC_Pitch_Competition.jpg.
