This event simply could not happen without community support; so why not be a Perth Games Festival volunteer this year? Whether you enjoy making or playing games, are an aspiring developer or seasoned veteran, have gotten involved before or are new to all this; now is a great time to get involved and help us show off the great games (and games community) we have in Western Australia.

Are you ready for iParty 2.0?

iParty 2.0, the end-of-year party for the Perth game development community, is on this Friday (27 November), so make sure that you are free from 6pm-9pm!

The response to our call for volunteers has been huge, so a big thank you to everyone who replied. All required positions have been filled in record time!

We’ve been asked a few times about whether people will be able to demonstrate games at the event. We will have a few “demo tables” setup with powerboards. Also please plan to arrive a little early (5:30pm) if you are bringing something to demo and make sure that you have all required equipment (laptop, cables, speakers, game controllers etc.)

We’ve extended our showreel deadline to 5pm Tuesday. It’s easiest if you just upload your video to an online host (such as YouTube) and send us a link. Remember that videos are to be no longer than 1 minute (unless you are a sponsor) and you can only submit one per company and product.

That’s all for now, but be sure to check back throughout the week (or subscribe to our RSS feed) for more details on the event (including easy-to-follow directions to the venue).

See you on Friday!
