Perth Games Festival: New Sponsors!

Autodesk: We <3 Indies

It’s not long until the Perth Games Festival hits town, so we would like to introduce you to the first set of wonderful organisations who have jumped in to support this great event. Without their contribution the festival just won’t be possible, so we truly mean it when we say THANK YOU!

So let’s start our major sponsor, say hello to the good folks at Autodesk!

The iOS and Android versions of Zombie Outbreak Simulator released in 2012 and 2014 have been downloaded by over 500,000 people.

The 2015 Perth Games Festival is edging closer, but there’s still time to get in on the big event. Last year saw more than 1600 people pass through the doors of Town Hall to play locally made games and get a glimpse into the WA-gaming community; this year is going to be even bigger, and we would love for you to join us and have your work shared with the wider community.

What: Perth Games Festival
When: Saturday, 28 November, 2015. 10am – 5pm*
Where: Perth Town Hall, Corner of Hay ST & Barack Street, Perth
Tickets: Free to attend, cost to Exhibit. See below for more details…

*The Festival will be open to the public from 10am-5pm, however developers will be required to attend earlier to setup. Plus there’s an excellent after-party planned so you can celebrate a successful day with your fellow game dev.

Interested in becoming a Sponsor?

Last year’s inaugural Perth Games Festival was a huge success, and sponsoring the 2015 Festival will help us make this year’s event bigger. There’s plans for a larger space, more talks and panels, guest speakers, and of course more WA-made games. There are a number of benefits to being a Festival Sponsor, including showcasing your business to thousands of Perth locals.

To accommodate a recent reshuffle in the Festival Committee, the cut-off date for Sponsorship has been extended. Sponsor information (including business logo, bio and website info) and payments are now required by October 26th.

To find out more about the Sponsorship benefits, tiers, and the Festival, please refer to our 2015 Prospectus. To become a sponsor, simply fill in a Sponsorship Agreement form and we will get back to you shortly. Alternatively, you can contact Jess and Jon directly via email if you would like to have a chat first.
