IGDA Melbourne: Pocket Dogfights and Post 2013 GDC

IGDA Melbourne are having a double header for the next monthly meet-up on Tuesday, next week.

Just released on iOS and Android is Pocket Dogfights by Melbourne indie games developer, Rob Caporetto.

The development of Pocket Dogfights started in late 2011, from a period when Rob was working on a bunch of small game prototypes in his spare time. Finding this one to be the most fun, he started developing it further during his downtime from a day job.
