Local development team Stirfire Studios and Lisa Rye have been working on a game called Freedom Fall set for release on Windows, Mac, Android and iOS sometime in the near future.

We’ll be printing name tags tomorrow and we can still order more food, so it’s not too late for a last minute RSVP (facebook, contact form, or respond to this post). There’s also still time to submit a video for the show-reel (which we will be compiling at the same time), and you are always welcome to bring something to demonstrate.

Here’s what we have in the show-reel so far:

See you on Sunday!

GameJam in 2 weeks! Sign-up now!

The next Perth GameJam is just under two weeks away. That means we’re just two weeks and a few days away from playing some sweet, sweet GameJam games!

It also means that you need to sign-up soon in order to secure your place!

For more information visit the GameJam homepage.

2 days to go!

iParty 2.0 is in just two days time (Friday, 27 November) and everything is coming together: Paul is compiling the video showreel; Minh is taking care of food, drinks, and pretty much everything else; We have a bunch of people helping out on the night and I’m bringing the volunteers’ t-shirts – fashionably modelled here:

We’re planning for around 100 people (based on 44 confirmed attendees on Facebook and around 30 RSVPs via email or the contact page; we usually get around 50% more people than RSVPs), and we will have food and drink to accommodate. If you know game developers, related industry professionals, or game development students who aren’t attending – please spread the word and ask them to come along!

That said, it’s always better to have better numbers. So if you haven’t yet RSVP’d, but expect to attend (I’m looking at you James and Cameron), please RSVP ASAP!

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!
