Apps World Press Release


February 2014


Glowstick Games is to exhibit within Apps World North America’s start-up village at the San Francisco show from February 5-6, in a unique opportunity offered by the show’s organisers who are supporting start-ups with complimentary exhibition space designed to encourage innovation and new businesses.

Glowstick Games will be exhibiting in the Indie Game Zone, where they will be showcasing the new cross-platform horror game, Dark Deception. Dark Deception features the voice of Carolyn Seymour (Mass Effect, Gears of War, Star Trek) as Helen Bierce and the game will be demonstrated using the Oculus Rift. Dark Deception is being developed for PC, mobile devices, and consoles (Wii-U, Xbox One).

"Apps World is a great opportunity to demonstrate how our first game works with new VR technology to some of the most influential people in the industry. This will be our first time at Apps World North America and we feel very fortunate to be able to participate and add to the event." - Vince Livings, CEO/Co-Founder of Glowstick Games.

"Apps World is a chance to get the kind of feedback that is essential to creating fun games.  We look forward to having a lot of industry experts play our game and tell us what they like, what they think customers will like, and what could be better." - Mark Henderson, CTO/Co-Founder of Glowstick Games

Ian Johnson, founder of Apps World, said: “Apps World North America is a key event for anyone in the apps and mobile industry but it is also a chance to support and promote the exciting new talent that is coming through the industry too, especially as they will evolve into the market leaders of tomorrow. We are pleased to be able to support the start-ups with dedicated areas at the show and wish them every success at the event.”

Apps World North America, which runs from February 5-6 in San Francisco, will include more than 300 speakers, attracting more than 8,000 attendees.

Glowstick Games was founded in October 2013 by two game industry veterans : Mark Henderson and Vince Livings. Both have spent the past 9 years working with various companies such as EA, Microsoft, Zynga, Red Hot Labs, and Riot Games. During that time they developed some of the key technology and visual styles used for several successful social and mobile games at Zynga and Red Hot Labs. The focus at Glowstick Games is to be a positive influence on the game industry, not a negative one. That means the core of the company culture is innovative thinking and fun game design. Glowstick Games is not utilizing reactionary data driven design or designing hardcore monetizing games. The mission is, simply, to deliver great games that people will genuinely enjoy playing and want to share.
