iParty 2.0 was a great success with around 100 people attending!
Thanks to everyone who attended (you make organising these events worthwhile), our volunteers (Stewart, Brett, Alex, Saxon, Steve, Nigel, John, Sam, Simon, Anthony), and our sponsors (
Different Methods, the Innovation Centre, Subversive Games, Rockethands, Black Lab Games, and Reveries Virtual World):
Special thanks also to all companies that contributed to the showreel (apologies to
Binary Space for not getting their “ Class 3 Outbreak” teaser in) and to Game Pride for bringing along some laptops to demonstrate their latest game “Boo!”. Thanks also to Ben, who took most of the photos.
Here are some photos from the night in chronological order:
Anthony (Let’s Make Games Treasurer) returns from his wedding just in time to sort out receipts and payments. What a champion!
Saxon, Steve, and Nigel went on quite a journey in order to bring everyone else food. For that (and everything else) we salute you! 😀
I asked Paul and Alex to look glamorous while presenting the prizes. Alex looks suitably Wheel-of-Fortune while Paul looks disinterested (his tactic is obviously “hard to get”).
Jim and I were happy to see so many other mo-bros at iParty 2.0.
It’s crowded in this direction…
It’s crowded in this direction too…
Jean-Marie (Subversive Games), Christel-Lee, and Simon (Different Methods, Subversive Games) kindly pose for a photo from the paparazzi!
Tim intimidated Simon with his superior hair. Simon succumbs to a natural reaction.
Not content with their already tall statures, Simon, Shanon, and Greg reach for the sky.
Tony (from Subversive Games) presents Richard with a massive box (containing Altech Lansing speakers)
Simon (from Rockethands) presents Graham with a copy of Shadowrun
Paul carefully draws a raffle winner from the Golden Bag of Tickets
The crowd during the raffle draw (image also features Simon’s hair).
Greg looks happy with his Krumpler laptop bag, and Paul (Black Lab Games) somehow managed to time the prize presentation to coincide with his game (Star Hammer) being on display behind him!
Phillip warmly thanks Avril (from Reveries: Virtual World) for his slick black keyboard and mouse.
Stewart was the first volunteer to arrive and made a huge difference on the night! Here he is coming up to draw a raffle prize.
The game in Jetha’s hand somewhat contradicts the game (logo) on his shirt.
How is that title even related to this image of Saxon drawing a raffle prize winner!?
Saxon (from Binary Space) awards Jeremy his Krumpler mini-case. Jeremy totally loves it.
A huge thanks to the Game Pride team for demonstrating their latest game “Boo!” Impressive. 😀
Simon and Alex looking cute. Go team!
Peter’s heading back to the UK. Sad face. 🙁
It’s life imitating art (previously Simon was content to just photoshop himself into all group photos).
Now *that* is what I call eyebrow furling!
At this point I realised that Simon was in every single photo taken after I handed the camera to Benny Goodtimes.
Russia, France, an the USA all come together in Perth! 😀
Liza gets in between Jeremy and Simon.
Three games companies in the foreground (and one in the background).
What’s going on here? Who’s just out of frame? At least there’s no incriminating evidence…
It’s difficult to appreciate how tall Shannon and Simon are in this picture. Paul isn’t a short man!
I gather that eCentral TAFE is totally rockin’. 😀
Is apparantly more accessible than Jeremy’s. He looks like he knows it too.
It looks like Jeremy is chuffed with a joke he told… but actual responses are fairly mixed.
Greg has posing for photos down. Simon hasn’t quite got the staying still bit down yet. 😛
It’s a camera!
Happy organisers are a good sign of a fun event. 😀
Literal caption: Rowan is looking at Rj’s hair.
There are always a few rowdy types that ruin the end of the night for everyone.
Guess which person is nick-named “Dodgy” 😉
Chris (PIGMI overlord) is back from the UK!
A low-angle shot that’s still above board.
This upcoming “Summer” exhibition looks interesting. Everyone should go.
iParty’s over… but Kitchen Party is just beginning!
Oh Tone! You’re so funny.
