One game and three developers

Over the last few years, we’ve heard a lot of people express surprise when they learn about the local game development community:

There are game developers in Perth? Really?
That game was developed here?

As a community, it can be pretty disheartening to feel so invisible. Shipping a game is a huge achievement that should be recognised, and our local game developers should be celebrated like the stars they are!

That why Let’s Make Games maintains an directory of local game developers and keeps a record of locally developed games. If you haven’t yet seen our Games and Developers pages, check them out (and send us a profile if something is missing!).

We’ve just added the following developers:

And the following game:

Thanks to the developers for sending through profiles and bringing their game releases to our attention. As we’re purely volunteer-run, it sometimes takes a while before profiles appear online, so please be patient if you send one through (it will appear on the site eventually!)

This bring our total listings to 27 games and 17 developers. Not too shabby for an apparently small industry!

Website update

You may have noticed the visual overhaul of the Let’s Make Games website. Hopefully it comes across as a lot brighter and a bit more professional.

Aside from new visuals, we’ve been working to improve site content. We’ve created an Events page, updated content on the About page, and added a whole bunch of links (which should appear on the right-most column).

Please take a few minutes to check out the links section and let us know if there are any other sites that should be included. Chiefly, we want to ensure that our list of local game developers is as comprehensive as possible!

If you are a local developer, please contact us so that we can include a brief (company, group, or individual) bio in our upcoming report.
