Let’s Make Party!

Update: A huge thanks to our sponsors: Different Methods, Rockethands, DrewFX, Binary Space, and Handwritten Games.

Update: Please RSVP via the contact page or on the facebook event page by November 21! (This helps us make sure that we have enough food)

As 2010 draws to the close, Let’s Make Games would like to invite all of you in the local game development community to our second end-of-year party!

Last year’s party was a huge success (thanks to our volunteers, sponsors, and all of our attendees) and we’re calling on everyone to make this year’s party even better.

We’ve secured an exclusive upstairs bar at a great centrally-located venue, we’re organising for live music, and we’ll be putting on a bit of a spread for a weekend sundowner (which will no doubt kick on for a while afterwards).

Details:

  • Title: Let’s Make Party!
  • Time/Date: 4pm – 8pm, Sunday 28 November 2010
  • Location: Universal Bar & Cafe (upstairs), 221 William St. Northbridge
  • Description: End-of-year party for WA’s game development community. Come and meet local game developers, check-out this year’s games, and have an all-round fantastic time!
  • RSVP: 21 November 2010 for registration and catering purposes

It all takes place in just under five weeks, so mark the date on your calendar and let your friends know. Anyone interested in game development is welcome to attend. We always love seeing new faces and a wide range of people (eg. students,  artists, programmers, animators, designers, musicians, gamers, gamer-curious).

We’re currently looking for sponsors and volunteers, so please contact us if you feel that you can contribute. In regards to sponsorship, it’s a great way to engage (or give back to) the local community and we have many options available to suit any budget. So please don’t hesitate to contact us!

We’ll be announcing more details leading up to the event (eg. how to show off your games at the venue), so be sure to visit the site or subscribe to our feed.

Update: You can RSVP via the contact page or on the facebook event page.

iParty 2.0

Update: It was a great event! Click here for photos.

Let’s Make Games and IGDA Perth Chapter are proud to present iParty 2.0, the greatest ever end-of-year party for the Perth game development scene!

2009 has been an amazing year for the Perth game development community – with many local game releases, community events, and a number of new companies starting up. The end-of-year party is all about celebrating and showcasing these achievements in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere!

Details:

  • Title: iParty 2.0
  • Time/Date: 6:00pm – 9:00pm, Friday, November 27, 2009
  • Location: Innovation Centre, Enterprise Unit 3, Technology Park, Bentley
  • Description: Meet local game developers, check out the latest releases, and just have a good time. Food and drinks are on us.
  • RSVP by November 20 for catering and registration purposes.

Here’s the preliminary event flier (click for larger version):

flyer

As you can see a few areas are blank and we need your help to fill them in! If you are a local game developer who intends to submit a video for the showreel, please send us some screenshots and a company logo by November 6. Your final showreel videos will be required by November 20.

Showreel video submissions are limited to one 60 second video (720p resolution preferred) per company or product. So a company with two products released or under development in 2009 can submit a total of three videos (one for the company and one per product). If you already have a suitable video online, just send us a link to it!

If you are interesting in sponsoring the event, please contact us for more information as we have many options available (from contributing to food and drink costs to providing raffle prizes). Sponsorship is a great way to get your name out in front of local developers – or just to show your appreciation for the local scene!

We’ll release the final print-ready version of the flyer (with game screens and sponsor logos) on November 10.

For now, here are some important dates to mark on your calendar:

  • Friday 6 November 2009: Final flyer image deadline (for sponsors and showreel screenshots).
  • Friday 20 November 2009: RSVP deadline (for catering and registration purposes). Showreel video submissions deadline.
  • Friday 27 November 2009: iParty 2.0!

Also be sure to subscribe to our RSS feed (or check back regularly) for more information on the event. Feel free to ask any general questions in the comments section and we will try to answer them ASAP!

Help spread the word online; This will be the biggest party of the year for the Perth game development scene and we want to see you all there!

Update: Oh, I almost forgot to extend a HUGE thanks to the Innovation Centre who are our venue sponsors for the event. We wouldn’t have such a fantastic environment (or as much money available for food and drink) without their generous support!
