Show Us Your Bits write-up and photos

The LetsMakeGames.org May 2009 mixer event – Show Us Your Bits – had a fantastic turnout of over 40 professionals, students, hobbyists and interested public eager to showcase and play the latest projects and gamejams from Perth developers.

Hosted at the Wineroom at the back of the Brass Monkey, there were delicious finger foods and a toasty fireplace to keep everyone warm against the chill outside. A projector displayed numerous projects-in-development, gamejams and screenshots to the entire room while a table of computers along the back wall showcased some great games.

The following games were featured on the PCs:

Title: Locked In
Authors: Sam Zeid, Neha Shatas, Mitchel Curtis, Nicholas Garel, Stephen Morghan, Jovin Jovinson, Simon Jonikis and Nichole Lisson

Thanks to everyone who attended, and a special thanks and congratulations to everyone who brought their games for people to play. It was great to have so many people enjoying the handiworks of local developers, and is a good sign of things to come for the Perth scene!
