GX Australia Gets Funded On The Final Day

Australia’s queer gaming convention – for the second year running – has crept over the funding line with less than a day remaining.

The campaign went into the week with around $20,000 still to go, but as was the case last year a huge surge of support at the finish line has brought the country’s first queer gaming convention to within a few thousand dollars. That was the case until around 4:00 PM, when a sizeable donation pushed the campaign over the $60,000 goal.

GX Australia is moving from the Australian Technology Park in Redfern, Sydney, to Olympic Park out at Homebush. It’s a bit more of a hassle as far as public transport is concerned, but the event’s also cheaper to attend — and, unlike the inaugural event, it’ll have air conditioning and better internet access.

If you still want to pledge to the event, and get some free games in the process, you can do so over at Kickstarter. The minimum funding tier to get a ticket is $50, and you’ll get your pick of three locally developer games for your trouble.
