GpsAssassin Launch Party – Killing Beers and Neighbors

June 7, 2009

Anyone following the progress of home-grown iPhone game gpsAssassin knows the time and effort spent to get it pushed out into the app store. Perhaps the most grueling portion of this process was waiting for confirmation from apple that it indeed had been approved. They don’t indicate how long it’ll take — so planning a launch party is equally difficult.


So without further ado, I’m happy to announce the “Kill Your Neighbor While You Kill Your Beer” gpsAssassin Launch Party hosted by Nicholas Holland and Jackson Miller of Side Hobby June 16 from 5:30 – 7:30 at Castle Centre{source} [click here for a map].

Bring your iPhone or iPod Touch to celebrate the text-based violence and mayhem that is gpsAssassin. Wearing a costume or steath assassin attire is encouraged as is taking pictures/screenshots for your Flickr account. I have no doubt that there will be some kind of exclusive launch party weapon/item/thing to entice you to pick people off as they casually sip beer. And if you aren’t yet smitten by Apple handhelds, there will be plenty of people at the party available to give you a demo (and by that I mean text-death/humiliation).

As For the Beer Killing…

Like I said in a previous post, the app is currently priced at $4.99, but will likely get cheaper (or free) in the near future. All the money made on the app between now and June 16 will be used to buy a Yazoo Keg for the launch party. So the five duckets you spent to show support for local developers is also beer money.

That my fellow geeks is a truly awesome way to give back to the community.
