The future of Queensland’s game scene

Library Ninja

This event is now in the past.

Games development in Queensland has taken many fascinating turns over the decades. From a small but committed indie scene in the 1990s, to the boom of consol development in the 2000s and its subsequent crash post GFC, through to the diverse and vibrant mobile device-focussed industry of today.

Supporting this dynamic field of practice are numerous research and educational programs in games based at a majority of Queensland’s universities and many private tertiary level training institutions.

Where will all this activity, combined with ever evolving technology and social media advances, take us in the future? What is in store for Queensland’s game developers and where do we fit in the Australian context or the international playing field? Our panel of industry experts tell us the future looks promising – come along and find out why.

Featuring Morgan Jaffit (Defiant Development), John Passfield (Red Sprite Studios) Anthony Wood (Screwtape Studios) and Nicole Stark (Disparity Games).
