The event, which takes place at the State Library of Victoria, incudes sessions on everything from iPhone development to DS homebrew, art, education, criticism, chiptunes and even workshops. Petri Purho, designer of Crayon Physics, will be giving the international keynote on Friday afternoon.
Freeplay organiser Paul Callaghan told Screen Play this morning that:
"Freeplay is all about looking at the creative side of not just games, but the broader digital culture and media. It's a showcase and exploration of art and creativity. And it's about getting people together. Our audience is made up of indies, professional developers, students, educators, artists, and gamers, and we're one of the few events where they’re in the same space, and where we encourage them to interact with each other."
Tickets are just $20 and are still available. Check out the rest of Jason Hill's chat with Paul Callaghan here.
