One of the highlights of PAX for me was meeting Eli Hodapp from Touch Arcade, who despite being in high demand, stood and talked with me for quite some time about the humble beginnings or our company. I can honestly say, he’s a really great guy.

But their former company, a game studio, was purchased by a California firm, rolled into a giant Japanese gaming conglomerate, and then shut down. It was early 2012, and they were all suddenly jobless. So the group hatched a plan to start their own company: ClutchPlay Games LLC …
