Games are THE FUTURE

Missed us? Perhaps not if you were using Planet PIGMI to keep up with local game indie dev news. After being out of action for the last few weeks it is back up! Thanks to chrism for his fixes.

Last Sunday we held our round table discussion at the Loftus Public Library. A big thank you to all those who took some time out of their Sunday to contribute (and for those who couldn’t make it but sent us their responses anyway). You can find our posts on the Digital Culture Public Sphere wiki.

The wiki is an interesting read, and we encourage local game developers to take a look. Here’s one of our favourite quotes:

Developers should develop a cultural and artistic voice separate from that defined by the established screen industry, both in their engagement with existing dialogue, but also in terms defined by the strengths, weaknesses, and audience of games as a medium. [Paul Callaghan]

Thanks to Paul Callaghan for articulating so well a position shared by many game creators. Check out his presentation to the Digital Culture Public Sphere (games development) above. You can also watch the recording of the livestream event.

Lastly, keep an eye out for our Pozible crowdfunding project for our end of year party! We want to give the community a chance to support us and make our party shenanigans as awesome as possible. We’ll let you know when the project is up, and whatever spare change you can pledge will go towards providing even more delicious snacks, tantalising treats and general good times. More details to come soon!
