Three big Freeplay events for 2014 and 2015

Today we are super excited to announce not one, not two, but three big Freeplay events for both this year and next: On August 31 we’re running ‘Play By the Book’ as part of the Melbourne Writers Festival ‘LitHop’ event. We’re at Rancho Notorious (upstairs at 1000 Pound Bend) at 2pm. We’ll be matching indie games with live readings of classic literature simultaneously. It’ll be weird, and hopefully, it’ll be delightful. On October 18, Freeplay and ACMI and presenting Parallels, a brand new day-long event of two great parts. We’ve got the Parallels Showcase at 7pm, a session in the ACMI studio where we’re curating an amazing array of local game makers demoing their games live. You can grab tickets to this right now at the ACMI site. We’re keeping this intimate, so get in quick or you’ll miss out. Earlier in the same day, we’re also running the totally free Parallels Playday, where we’ve got some great games, activities, and performances throughout the day in the ACMI Lightwell. We’ll be talking a lot about both of these events more over the coming weeks. And finally… in April 2015, we’ll be running the next big Freeplay festival. This will be our tenth festival ever, so when we say it’ll be big, it’ll be big. In fact, we’re planning ten days of Freeplay in April next year. That’s our biggest festival ever. We’re really putting the ‘festival’ part of our name upfront and centre, too, with the usual talks and panels, but also parties, our awards, performances, social events, game playing sessions, and even completely free panels using the same system you see above that...

Well, we’ve got some announcements to make…

Join us this Wednesday the 13th at 1pm AEST in our live Google Hangout for Freeplay’s Lunch Launch, where we’ll be announcing our upcoming programme of events! You can either just hit ‘play’ above on the embedded link at 1pm, or join us at the Google Plus event page. We’re looking forward to your company...
