Battledecks - ROUND THREE


"Gesture, Flow, Credibility and Jargon"


  • 2 people from the crowd are chosen (by elimination or volunteering or voting...) and go head-to-head in DemoCamp's installment of BATTLEDECKS
  • Each contender is given a 6-to-8 page Keynote Presentation on the spot and will present their fabulous, ground-breaking, earth-shattering, mind-blowing business/project/idea/nonsense to the crowd, inspiring us all on whatever it is they are revealing.
  • Think: "Gesture. Flow. Credibility. Jargon." It will really help.
  • Winner will be professed by crowd applause and cheering.
  • Prizes may be awarded, but bragging rights is the ultimate goal.


We need Battle Decks created as well as presented, so start polishing your decks.




Fill out and promote your demo idea ahead of time. The attendees will vote you in. Bringing a giant mario cube or other forms of props and/or bribing the crowd is absolutely allowed.


Note: for DCV06, we are looking for gaming related demos/ideas.


Bleeding Edge iPhone Development

  • Parveen Kaler, Smartful Studios
  • Apple recently released a BETA SDK for iPhone and iPod Touch Development. They also announced the iPhone Apps Store. I will talk about development for the iPhone from the perspective of a coder along with business issues for independent game development studios. I will compare/contrast iPhone development with XBox Live Arcade, Sony PlayStation Network, Sony PSP, and WiiWare.
