Vermont Digital Arts at DevCon5

Tomorrow begins DevCon5 HTML5 conference in New York, New York.  Elliott Mitchell, founder of Vermont Digital Arts, will be speaking on Thursday about why he recommends developing games in Unity on the panel: The Game Developer’s Dilemma. The panel description is as follows:

Mobile/social gaming is exploding, with smaller teams and smaller budgets developer can reach new market segments. One of the critical questions every developer needs to ask is What would be the best choice HTML5 or something else? HTML5 holds the oft heard promise of write once run anywhere. Unity 3d is growing in leaps and bounds and seems to be the most common multiplatform development environment for cross platform games.

PWN from 82 Apps for iPad and iPhone: It’s What We’re Playing Today

[image_frame style=”framed” align=”center”]http://vermontdigitalarts.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/PWN_320x480-75.jpg[/image_frame]

Today PWN, a tactical hacking game by 82 Apps, was released on the App Store. PWN recently took home two awards from the Mass DiGI Game Challenge and perked the attention of the press and other game developers. PWN is a fast paced hacking tournament simulation with a very cool 3D interface, modes of attack and defense. The game can be played as single player or multi-player. I played multi-player against Erik Asmussen (founder of 82 Apps) last week at the game challenge and got my ass royally kicked. I’ll be back for more!

Buy PWN now at the App Store and feel the power!
