Why No CrossOver at the Game Developers Conference?

2 March 2015 by Jana SchmidJana Schmid

This week, five of CodeWeavers luckiest agents get to leave the subzero temperatures of St. Paul, Minnesota for spring in San Francisco, California for the Game Developers Conference.

Yes, you heard me right! CodeWeavers is going to be at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, March 4-6 (booth
202). You're probably wondering what a cross-platform utility software like CrossOver Mac and CrossOver Linux would be doing at the Game Developers Conference. The answer is simple. Nothing.

CrossOver Mac and CrossOver Linux will not be making an appearance at the Game Developers Conference this year. I repeat CrossOver Mac and CrossOver Linux will not be making an appearance at the Game Developers Conference this year. Then what on earth is CodeWeavers going to be showcasing?


Our Porting Services.

More specifically games that we have successfully ported from Windows to Mac. Hop into the driver's seat of one of our iRacing simulators and take a spin around Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Conjure your way through the Spiral as you duel monstrous enemies and cast your adventure in the worlds of Wizard101. Step back in time to the mid-20th century and destroy the steel masses that stand between you and ultimate glory in World of Tanks. We will have all three game ports playing on Mac for your enjoyment.

Oh, and we will have a little something-something to share with you on Android too.

For three days, March 4-6 at booth 202, we are going to demonstrate to the attendees of the Game Developer Conference the magic of porting your Windows games to Mac with CodeWeavers. Did I mention that we will also be giving away Crown Cards for Wizard101 and World of Tanks Gold to anyone who stops by and plays?

See, I told you we are more than just CrossOver.
