For those of you lucky enough to be heading to Melbourne for PAX Australia at the end of the month, the schedule for all the panels is now available on the site. Man, there is a lot of stuff to check out.
Also: some blatant self promotion. I'll be appearing on a few of those panels!
I'll be hosting a panel titled 'Where to now for Australian Game Development?; alongside some pretty key names in the Australian games industry, including Morgan Jaffit, the Director of Defiant Development and Tony Lawrence, General Manager at 2K Australia. I'm pretty excited about that one. Should be a humdinger.
I'm also on the panel for the 'Spiritual Warfare: Religion and Spirituality in Video Games' panel alongside a bunch of great Australian writers including Patrick Stafford, Jason Imms and Nathan Cocks. Pretty interested to see the direction that one heads in.
But that's only two of seemingly hundreds of panels. The subject matter is broad, the talent involved is humongous and there should be something to cater to all tastes. Can't wait to head to some of these panels myself. In particular I can't wait for the 'Talking Funny: Comedy and Video Games' panel featuring Ron Gilbert and the 'Games Industry Trends - beyond 2014' panel featuring Dr Jeff Brand and Ron Curry.
