Way back in July GX Australia was announced — Australia’s first queer gaming festival. Back then there was talk of a Kickstarter to help fund the event. Now that Kickstarter is live.
We’re a little bit late to the party but if you’re still feeling the warm and fuzzies from another great PAX Australia, you might want to consider supporting GX Australia.
The current plan is for the event to take place at the Australian Technology Park on February 26 and 27 in 2016.
Several guests are already confirmed, like Chris Avellone from Obsidian, Australian YouTuber AussieGamerChick and Tim Cain, one of the creators behind the original Fallout. GX Australia has already secured a number of sponsors — high profile indie studios like Defiant Development, League of Geeks and Many Monkeys.
The event is being run by Liam Esler and Joshua Meadows. Liam recently helped put Game Connect Asia Pacific together and Joshua has been one of the main organisers for Sydney Gaymers for years.
When GX Australia was first announced, Joshua Meadows said he hoped it would become an annual event in Sydney, but the team are keen to get the first one up and running first.
