PocketGamer LaunchPad #4 (Online)
May 20 @ 5:00 pm - May 21 @ 8:00 pm PDTFree
From PocketGamer: Pocket Gamer LaunchPad offers a brand new way for publishers and developers to create buzz around their games to a massive audience, be they recent launches, upcoming titles, significant updates to existing games. We’re planning four LaunchPad events in 2021, with our next event running from February 25th-26th. We also have provisional dates for May, August and November events.
Why is Pocket Gamer doing this?
Whilst the console and PC industries have multiple editorial ‘launch’ events throughout the year, such as E3, Gamescom, EGLX, Rezzed etc, mobile games have never really had their own, and even when they do appear at these larger events, they are usually overshadowed or treated as second class citizens. We think this disrespect has gone on too long, especially now that the mobile games industry is by far the biggest part of the games industry (almost half the overall value and way bigger than either PC or console).
Obviously, the event is being led by Pocket Gamer but it is also backed by the Enthusiast Gaming Network, currently, the largest games media network in the world which reaches over 200M gamers p/month through its network of leading sites such as the Escapist, Destructoid, Nintendo Enthusiast and more.
How does it work on the day?
We’ll run a central editorial channel on PocketGamer.com that will fill up with news, interviews, videos and more throughout each day, starting from 9am UK TIME. Then, from 5pm-7pm UK TIME we’ll run a live video stream full of announcements, showcases, hands-on plays and developer interviews as well as some cool offers and giveaways. We’ll also have a live Discord chat group where players can discuss the games with each other, our team and developers themselves.
