Official Judge for GameIS Awards
I’m an official judge for this years GameIS Awards it was an honor to be asked and I’m very excited to be a part of the GameIS Awards. I’m also really surprised and happy to see so many great games coming out of Israel and the Israeli game community.
The GameIS Awards are a part of the annual GameIS event. There are number of categories Best Student Game, Best iOS Game, Best Web Game, Best Social Game, Best Android Game, Best Indie iOS Game and Best Advergames. Its great to see so many great games that are polished and fun to play it also seems that every year the games get better and better.
The GameIS event is an annual event held in Israel for anyone doing anything with games. This isn’t my first time being involved in the event I was privileged to speak at last years event. I was also able to be active as an admin member and help out at with other events in the past including bring together our user group “Flash & Flex Israel” and even help in providing a speaker from the Adobe Game Developer Evangelist Team. This year things are a bit different the administration has completely changed and Oded Sharon is no longer part of the administration. It’s a bit to early to know how this well affect the community but I’m not to worried the game community in Israel is great and I’m looking forward for what’s in store.
Unfortunately I can’t make it this year I well be speaking at Casual Connect Kiev (follow the link for a full blog post) however the event looks great. There are some great speakers lined up and of course its really not about the speakers but getting a chance to see everyone and network so I would highly suggested you make it out to the event.
My only feedback about the event is providing sponsors prime time speaking spots or to make it worse full sessions and in my experiences it doesn’t really help the event. But of course this is my personal thoughts and every event needs funding. I am very glad that for our community event Flash Israel we didn’t have to do this. Either way make sure to make it out it should be an amazing event.
