Floyd gave a great overview of the Exertion Games Lab’s vision at Pause Fest in Melbourne Central last month. Chad and Josh also play and demo the lab’s games in the video. Pause Fest was a great experience for everyone in the lab and a great opportunity for the public to see and try the demos.
Our very own Josh Platt has recently been awarded first prize for the iPad app “eMod” that was made for the Future Proofing Schools competition. The app was made in Unity in just 11 days! Congratulations!
Giselle Rosman has kindly posted up Florian ‘Floyd’ Mueller’s speech from the IGDA (International Game Developers Association) Melbourne Exertion Games special on the IGDA Melbourne website. The recording was done by Joel from Mnemonic Audio, so big thanks to him!
On Tuesday, 8 Nov 2011, the Exertion Games Lab hosted an IGDA (International Game Developers’ Association) Melbourne Exertion Games special, which packed the lab with game developers who enjoyed the dozens of games to play. Engagement like these further our aspirations to inspire industry towards a better use of digital games in modern culture. The Exertion Games Lab is proud to have housed the second year anniversary of IGDA Melbourne.
