OMG LMG BBQ VDO

OMG LMG BBQ was our first event of 2011. The turn-out was fantastic and a good time was had by all. It was particularly great to see so many people come from far and wide (throughout Perth and regional WA!) to attend.

Those on you on the PIGMI mailing list – or on the forums, or following us on twitter, or part of our facebook group, or subscribed to our YouTube Channel, or regular visitors to our videos page – would have already seen the outstanding event video put together by our very own Ben Hammersley.

However, I just realised that amongst all the hussle-and-bussle of our panel discussion for ScreenWest and events promotion for Think Tank 3 and (the fast-approaching) X|Media|Lab, we hadn’t yet featured this video on our front page!

So here it is in all its glory:

Every video Ben and Rich produce brings me closer to nostalgic and heartfelt tears. As an organisation and a local community, we are very fortunate to have dedicated film makers who offer their time and effort to record our precious memories. Thanks guys! You add richness and vibrancy to our record of community history!

Note: We also have video and photos from our last event with ScreenWest. Watch for those in the next few days. 🙂

Good times at Let’s Make Party! (video)

Want to relive the good times of Let’s Make Party!? (Or maybe you just couldn’t make it, and you want to know what it was like.)

Thankfully our resident videographers, Richard and Ben, have put together a fantastic short that captures the good times that were had. Enjoy the contagious enthusiasm of the Perth game development community!

Still craving more nostalgia? Check-out photos from the event, and the playlist of locally developed content that was screened on the night.

Why do you make games?

At our 2010 end-of-year party, we asked members of the local game development community “Why do you make games?

Here are the responses:

Thanks to Ben for capturing the interviews, and to all our interviewees:

We’re looking forward to interviewing more local game developers next year!

Perth game developer talks now online

Those of you who missed out on last month’s Short Talks by Perth game developers can now watch some of them online! Unfortunately, we weren’t able to record all of the talks (due to NDAs and sensitive information).

Aranda Morrison from Gnomic Studios spoke about developing Square Off! for Xbox Live Indie Games (XBLIG) Marketplace. He presented a lot of great information for XBLIG developers wondering how to market their games (eg. timing is vital!):

Saxon Druce from Binary Space spoke about development of Class 3 Outbreak, a web-based flash game featuring zombies and Google Maps. He candidly touched upon a range of topics including: getting Dugg; last-minute server reconfiguration; approaches to making money from a free game; and player attention spans:

Let’s Make Games would like to join our speakers in sending out a huge “Thank you!” to local videographers Richard Kong and Benny Goodtimes for recording these talks and getting them online!

Thanks to everyone for coming and thanks Rich for the video (it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy)! Look out for our next event in a few months time! 😉
