Let’s Make Games has worked to support the West Australian game development community for the last seven years. In this time the hard-working Nick Lowe, Minh Tran and Richard Kong have been behind the scenes keeping it all going, but last month they officially stepped down from their positions on the committee. So let us introduce you to the new faces of Let’s Make Games, and take some time to reflect on the cool folks who came before.
First up, we would like to welcome the new members of Let’s Make Game’s Committee, who will be working to ensure the organisation continues to support game-makers across WA and showcase their work to the wider community.
Say hello to…
- John Parker, Chair
- Kitty Byrne, Vice Chair
- Brendan Ragan, Treasurer
- Brad Power, Secretary
- Wesley Lamont, Ordinary Committee Member
- Jess Watson, Ordinary Committee Member & General Operations Team
- Jon Hayward, Ordinary Committee Member & General Operations Team
The new committee has already jumped into things head-on, with members Brendan Ragan and Jon Hayward representing Let’s Make Games in the Environment and Communications References Committee, Senate Inquiry into the future of Australia’s video game development industry. Former Chair Nick Lowe had contributed in the previous call for submissions on behalf of LMG, and the new members stepped up to continue the discussion. The full transcript of the proceedings for WA and Sydney is now available for download here. (Note: Submission were also made by WA developers Black Lab Games and Stirfire Studios).
Thank you to…
We at Let’s Make Games would like to take this opportunity to thank the exiting members of the committee; Nick, Minh and Rich for all their work with the organisation over the years. LMG began back in 2009, with Nick and Minh starting it all. Rich joined the following year, and they have continued behind the scenes as LMG’s committee since it became an Incorporation in 2011. So we extend a heartfelt THANK YOU, to Nick, Rich and Minh for all their support of the local game scene! Your commitment and care has played a significant role in shaping the great community we have here in WA.
Although they are stepping back from their work with the organisation, the exiting members will still of course be involved in making games and playing with new tech; so if you do see them around, be sure to tell them that they are awesome.
