Sandbox releases Adrenaline Snowboarding

Note: Our next event isn’t going to be for a few months, so we’ve decided to post more local news articles to the website. Please contact us with any local news or press releases concerning the Perth game development community!

Perth iPhone developers Sandbox Software have just released their first iPhone game: Adrenaline Snowboarding!

I guess the only thing left to say is: Congratulations Sandbox Software on the release of your first iPhone game!

What’s That in Your Pocket this Tuesday night!

Our pocket-gaming social event is on tomorrow night (Tuesday July 28) so be sure to make your way down to The Velvet Lounge at 7:30pm.

Let’s Make Games events are fun social get-togethers for local game developers and gamers. It’s great to catch up with the local scene and see what people they have been working on, and there’s always a friendly atmosphere for curious newcomers.

The original event announcement has all key information, but here are a few new highlights

GameTraders (Carillon City and Carousel) will be bringing along two PSPs for a pre-release demonstration of Dissidia: Final Fantasy. One PSP will be connected to a projector for general viewing. Dissidia: Final Fantasy is scheduled for local release in September.

A number of local games companies will be demonstrating their latest iPhone games. This includes Surf Prodigy by DrewFX and RocketFuse by RocketHands. Also attending (and possibly demonstrating) will be game developers from Istpika, Spinfast, Staring Man, Subversive Games, Black Lab Games, Interzone Entertainment, Sandbox Software, and Kruger Heavy Industries.

Crewjo are looking for local mobile game developers and may make a brief announcement. Finally, GO3 will be announcing a special opportunity for local developers to showcase their work and to network with other companies at the upcoming GO3 Electronic & Entertainment Expo in October.

We hope to see you there!

We apologise if we missed mentioning any developers who plan to demonstrate and have RSVP’d. Feel free to bring along short promo videos (on a USB stick) for our video loop.

Update: Anthony will be bringing Bomberman for multi-player wireless DS gaming tonight! 😀
