Attention all game artists, modders, skinners and mappers. Free Play is back!
"The best games conference I've ever attended, probably because it was focused on individual game developers and enthusiasts rather than big companies...I found it really inspirational." Binh Nguyen, Attendee at Free Play 2004
Free Play caters for independent and DIY game developers, creatively frustrated professionals, game development students, digital artists and new media academics.
Developed by the indy game community for the indy game community, Free Play provides the only forum for Australian independent game developers to share knowledge, showcase their work and initiate new projects.
The conference also caters to those creative makers who are increasingly adopting game development technologies and techniques into their art practice. Commercial game professionals, too, are given an opportunity to explore their role in the broader game culture.
The three-day conference will cover topics including:
> home brew console game development
> independent and online distribution methods
> open source and distributed development models
> publishing and licensing agreements
> finance and government funding
> game art and design skill sharing
