The Achievement Badge Quest has returned in 2015, giving you the opportunity to win prizes just by playing games! Around the Perth Town Hall, a number of developers have exclusive festival badges for you to collect – here’s what you need to know to get your badges and win some awesome things.
How does it work?
The Badge Quest is free to take part in; here’s what you need to do to get involved:
- When you arrive at the Festival, head to the Welcome Desk to get your 1st badge;
- Play games at the badge booths, and complete the assigned task to earn your badge;
- Collect all 12 badges (kids collect 8, with no doubles);
- Show you badges to the Information Desk on the 1st Floor, and collect your reward!
What can you win?
We have a huge range of prizes available for you to pick from, including lots of games, tickets, and books for both adults and kids on making games, coding and art.
First up, thanks to the folks behind the Realmz Escape Game you could get your hands on double passes to the live-action game Curse of the Mummy (valued at $70!). This means after recovering from a successful weekend of playing local games, you will be able to put all those skills to the test to see if you can uncover the mysteries of the mummy’s tomb.
Or perhaps you would rather a different game you can take away? Instead you could choose to pickup a Collector’s Edition of the award-winning Freedom Fall by Stirfire Studios, one of the many cool games from Backyard.SK, or if boardgames are more your style then your own copy of COGZ by RAEZ.
There will also be a massive range of books thanks to the folks at Boffins Bookshop, that will give you everything you need to know about making games. From coding for kids, to the history of games, it’s up to you to choose your reward. But remember, you have to earn your badges first!
