BRINGING BARCELONA TO SAN FRANCISCO- SOCIAL POINT HOSTS ROCKING GDC PARTY

The gaming industry is settling back into the saddle this week after the thrills and spills of GDC in San Francisco. The Social Point team travelled out from Barcelona to bring a little Mediterranean flavor to GDC this year. We hosted a killer party at San Francisco’s beautiful Battery Club, offering our VIP guests a real taste of Barcelona in the form of Spanish tapas, wines and the very coolest Barcelona beats. (As well as a few sneaky peeks at some of the awesome games we have lined up for 2014.)

Around 200 of our friends from Apple, Google, Disney, Amazon, EA, Supercell, Rovio, Zynga, Kabam and other incredible game industry top players from all over the world joined us at The Battery Penthouse to celebrate GDC. Our guests also really helped us see in 2014, which is shaping up to be a killer year for Social Point. We will be launching no fewer than 4 new games this year in the MASS category – Mobile, Action, Social Strategy games – that we hope will rock players all over the world.

A huge shout out to all of our amazing guests! We hope you are wearing your gift FC Barcelona jerseys with pride. And many thanks to the awesome team at The Battery for giving us a great time!
