October 1st, 2016

We are returning once again in 2016, at the Perth Town Hall! So get ready to uncover the best that gaming and game development in Western Australia has to offer.

Coordinated by the crew at Let’s Make Games, this event has something for everyone; you can play a pile of PC and mobile games, join tables full of card and board games, get your hands on home-made arcade machines and jump right into virtual reality.

Plus for those folk interested in making games, you can meet the developers, listen in on panels, and find out how you can create your very own gaming experiences!

And the best part? Entry is free!

Other Events

The Perth Games Festival has been working very hard with some of the incredible people in Perth to run other events alongside the festival.

Last year's events included The Whistler., a live horror game where you explore, discover, run, hide, sneak, cooperate, and ultimately attempt to not die.

2015 also saw the first Extended Play Unconference following the festival. This was a playful event at which everyone was welcome to come along, discuss and share their thoughts on games, the universe and everything.
