A new sponsor appears!

Let’s Make Games would like to thank Handwritten Games, who recently came on-board as our latest sponsor for Let’s Make Party.

Handwritten Games is wrapped in mystery, and we wonder what wonders they will be bringing into the world. Perhaps their website holds a clue. Here’s a quote:

Fedoras? Pew Pew. Yesss. ? Coming Soon.

Of course! It’s all so very clear now!…

This bring our total list of sponsors to: Different Methods, Rockethands, DrewFX, Binary Space, and Handwritten Games.

Let’s Make Party is our fast-approaching end-of-year party (Sunday 28 November 2010) and everyone interested in game development in Perth is invited! (That means you!) For more information, see the original announcement. To RSVP, contact us or use the facebook event page.

We hope to see you there!


Let’s Make Games is entirely volunteer-run and large events are really dependent on sponsorship and turn-out.

So we were ecstatic when, within a few hours of announcing Let’s Make Party, we had four local game developers contact us to lend their financial support! We made this flyer to celebrate (click image for large version):

Introducing this year’s sponsors thus far:

  • Different Methods is once again our major sponsor for the second year running. A quiet achiever but clearly Perth’s premier commercial game developer. Unassuming and unpretentious, their website simply states: “We make games”. And that’s exactly what they do – with a positive and inspiring just-get-on-with-it attitude.
  • Rockethands is also sponsoring us for the second year running. Regular game-jammers and event attendees, the Rockethands team have: a whole bunch of collective commercial experience; produced numerous indie games; released two iPhone games and one iPad game; and even produced a popular music video under their own label (Rocketband)!
  • DrewFX joins us this year as our most eager sponsor (they contacted us within minutes of the event announcement, keen to get funds to us ASAP!). They are probably most well-known for their iPhone game Surf Prodigy or via their presence in the Torque community.
  • Binary Space supported last year’s end-of-year party as volunteers, and this year they have come on board as sponsors. They are probably the only local game developer whose work has been featured on the National Geographic website (seriously, check out the link).

To our sponsors: We salute you! Thank you for your support!

It’s still over three weeks until the party, so there is plenty of time for new sponsors to sign-up, and we are still looking for volunteers to help on the day. Please contact us if you would like more information on sponsorship or volunteering.

Update: Handwritten Games has also signed on a sponsor!

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).


  • 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.
