More Super Sponsors supporting the Perth Games Festival

At last we have reached November, and we at Let’s Make Games have begun counting down to the Perth Games Festival. Since our previous update some more great companies have stepped in to help make this year’s event even bigger and better than ever. So let us introduce you to these wonderful people…

Thank you to our latest sponsors!

Game City is one of Perth’s best gaming and geek culture hangouts. Located right next to Perth’s Underground Train Station, Game City is a place where you can stop off for some quality food and coffee, or get some solid gaming time. In addition to having a cafe and arcade, Game City regularly features locally made games, and hosts events such as competitions, screenings, and launch parties.

Sponsor: Hungry Sky

Hungry Sky. The name says it all!

Actually, we’re not sure that the name says anything. Maybe it’s meant to convey that feeling you get when you look up at the sky and feel the enormous uplifting weight of possibilities driving you to try new things and explore the open blue sky. Maybe it’s just a phrase created by an online name generator that happened to correspond to: an available domain name, twitter handle, and facebook page. As the saying goes: “¿por qué no los dos?”

Whatever the name means, Hungry Sky is a multi-award winning local creative studio with a close relationship with Let’s Make Games Inc. (one of those supportive and nurturing relationships that we all deserve). We’re proud to see what Let’s Make Games Inc. has grown into since 2009, and even prouder to be supporting it’s second Perth Games Festival. We look forward to seeing you all there!

The Perth Games Festival Returns in 2015

Perth Games Festival 2015 Logo

The Perth Games Festival is back, and it is bigger than ever! Set to be held at Perth Town Hall on November 28, this free event is about showing off locally made computer games, tabletop games, mobile games and virtual reality experiences.

Last year’s inaugural Festival saw over 1600 people pass through the grand hall to play your games, and this year it’s levelled up. We will be taking over two floors, so there will be more space for developers and their games, plus more time for folks to get through and play them all! We at Let’s Make Games could not have made the 2014 Festival without you, the game-makers and gaming aficionados of Perth. So, once again, we are asking you to join us in celebrating the greatness of our local creative community!

What: Perth Games Festival 2015
When: Saturday 28th November, 10am – 5pm
Where: Perth Town Hall
Tickets: Free to attend; cost to exhibit.

You can connect with the Perth Games Festival on Facebook and Twitter, and if you know any WA developers keen to share their games (or Perth people who would like to play games) then please spread the word!
