Playup Perth (Special Edition) – Global Game Jam says
Global Game Jam “Innovation - Experimentation - Collaboration”

FTI’s Playup Perth is a monthly game testing event, where local Game Devs showcase their pre-release games for feedback.

Kickstarting 2017 into full throttle FTI is hosting a Special Edition Playup event on Friday 3rd Feb @ The Nostalgia Box for the games created at the annual Global Game Jam held the weekend prior.

Global Game Jam (GGJ) is an international event that simultaneously brings together talented individuals from all around the globe, challenging them to develop a game in 2 days around a central theme. The aim is to design, develop create, test and make a new game in the time span of 48 hours.

In Jan 2016, GGJ had over 600 locations in 93 countries create 6866 games in one weekend. The theme was ‘Ritual’, Perth contributed 20 brand new / local prototypes, some of which went onto become fully realised games (Symphony Of The Machine and Banishment).

2017’s Local GGJ, hosted by Let's Make Games, will be held at SAE Northbridge (116-120 Roe St) from Fri 20th - Sun 22nd of Jan. All creatives are welcome to attend, including; Writers, Artists and Musicians (GGJ always needs more Musicians). Sign up for this years Jam here.
