We painted London a lovely shade of red this week with Pocket Gamer Connects 2014, our first-ever conference that drew in close to 700 of the industry's best and brightest.

The overall theme of the conference was "East meets West", and much discussion was had on how game makers in the west can crack eastern markets while developers from Japan, Korea, and China shared their desire to bring their games to the west.

Underlying all of this was the undeniable fact that mobile is bringing the world closer together - and the opportunities this creates for both game development and cross-cultural communication are immense.

But a lot else happened this week that didn't tie directly into London, so let's take a look back at the week that was.
