As you may already be aware, this year's Freeplay Festival is underway with a number of online panels having already taken place. These panels are being streamed live online and there's more good news: anything you miss is being uploaded onto YouTube!
And I'm finding this extremely handy for playing catch-up.
A number of great panels have already taken place. Australia From The Outside featured a handful of high profile Australian developers living and working overseas — including Siobhan Reddy from Media Molecule and Bennett Foddy, the creator of QWOP. That's definitely worth a watch.
The above is an interesting panel on YouTube, Streaming and the Let's Play format that asks the question: why do we love to watch other people play. Also some pretty compelling viewing.
Freeplay is still kicking on with many online panels still on the horizon. You can check out the schedule (and get tickets for 'in real life' panels) at the official website here
