This Is Your First Look At 'Game Loading', A Docu About Melbourne's Indie Gaming Scene

Game Jams are an incredible thing to witness. Keyboards rattle, fizzy drinks are consumed and magic is made. It's a real genuine hub of creativity and I've been lucky enough to attend and watch two so far. But, sadly, I missed this year's Global Game Jam events in Australia. Thankfully Lester Francois is in the process of putting together a comprehensive movie length documentary called GameLoading — about Melbourne's thriving indie scene. He's released five minutes of footage of this year's Game Jam to get everyone excited about his upcoming flick.

The prospect of a movie about the Melbourne Indie scene is pretty exciting. There's so much exciting stuff being created down there and documenting everyone's work is a great idea.

You can follow the process of the documentary at GameLoading's Facebook page. I know I will.


    Hi there, Murray Lorden here (the game designer in the video), from MUZBOZ Games.

    It's been great fun spending time with Lester as he makes this film, and it's exciting to be a part of it, and I can't wait to see it, and learn more about all the other devs working in Melbourne.

    You can check out my first game Rad Skater Apocalypse here for iPhone!

    After many years working in the Melbourne Games Industry, I left to make my own games. There's been a lot to learn in terms of the programming side of things, it's been the hardest thing I've ever done, and it can be scary. But it's fun!

    Rad Skater Apocalypse is a homage to Melbourne city - set on the streets of Fitzroy - and a bunch of the earliest games I grew up playing as a kid like King's Quest, Alley Cat, Space Invaders, and Moon Patrol!
