Save the date, November 28

The Perth Games Festival is back in 2015, and is set to take over two floors of the Perth Town Hall! So save the date, and 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!
