In a GDC session, as reported by Edge, Nathan Vella of Capybara Games said that earning a featured spot on Apple or Google’s app stores is the best way to promote a premium mobile game. He mentioned a number of other factors like not launching in the same week as big titles, figuring out what makes the game special and designing the game before deciding how to monetise it, but said leveraging fan interest to help get platform holders’ interest is vital. “Both of their companies have extremely ‘ear to the ground’ editorial teams and if you can make a splash, they will notice,” he said.

Super Time Force, Critter Crunch and Sword & Sworcery developer Capybara Games has joined forces with Double Fine for a special promotion at PAX East. EDGE reports the two companies will share a booth, and have produced a little OutRun style racer starring characters from both developers’ catalgoues called Capy Fine Racing GP. The game will only be available on 3.5″ floppy discs, inside the Capy Double Fine PAX combo, a boxed release of the Steam bundle. “We only made 200 boxes, and even then some of the floppies might not work, but the people who buy them will be allowed and encouraged to share the game,” Capy co-founder Nathan Vella said. PAX East runs March 22-24 in Boston.

Also, there’s the usual free stuff, sneak peeks and a barrage of other stuff you normally wouldn’t see during the week.
