Games Connect Asia Pacific Returns This November

Games Connect Asia Pacific Returns This NovemberWe’ve just received word that Games Connect Asia Pacific, a games development conference that last year featured such presentations as “Soaps to MMOs: How Neighbours will become a World of Warcraft”, will return in November 2011. Last year’s event seemed to be a great success, and we can’t wait to see what’s discussed this time round.

The theme for 2011 is ‘The Journey’.

“‘The Journey’ is a liberating theme for the conference as it not only allows us to look forward and plot the path of the Australian game development industry over the next few years, but also lets us look back at our evolution, dissecting what has been learned over 31 years of creating games in Australia,” said Antony Reed, CEO of the Game Developers’ Association of Australia.

“GCAP 2010 was a community driven event and in many ways defined the capabilities of the Australian industry. For 2011, participation from every discipline in the game making process ensures we establish the right foundations for the industry’s future growth.”

GCAP will feature speakers from all areas of game development. We don’t have any info on specific presentations, but considering the quality of last year’s event we’re looking forward to hearing more.

The event takes place at the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre from Monday 14 November to Wednesday 16 November.



    That was the area of study for my HSC. I never wanted to hear that again 🙁

    • I know, it was Journey for me as well. I think I’ve had enough Peter Skrzynecki poetry to last a lifetime.

      Anyway, gaming, yeah.

  • I would love to be able to go to something like this but I have the same question as Aidan. Is this open to the public?

  • Hey guys, it IS open to the public (I attended last year as a game design student, and again this year as an indie dev) but the tickets will cost you up to 200 dollars, being a member of the game design community will net you cheap tickets though.

    If you like knowing about the game industry, i would thoroughly encourage you to come, and share many a beer with us.
