After a massive success, Playup Perth is again teaming up with SK Games to bring you another evening a of new local games and game prototypes, good friends and wallet friendly drinks.
Come meet the developers, play their games and help them make them even better!
What We will be Playtesting
1.) Kai Ashford-Hatherly, Kit Matthews and Rob Lemmon’s Suburban Encounter — a competitive city-building game for 3 to 6 players. Players work against each other to build a single city towards their own vision, resolving conflicts with bidding wars and co-investment deals.
2.) Offpeak Games’ Valiant First tested at Playup Perth + SK Games After Dark #2, Valiant is a multiplayer virtual reality game designed for the Oculus Rift, featuring fast paced mounted combat across open medieval terrains. Lead your team to victory in exciting team-based deathmatch style gameplay across a large open map. Gain speed, charge your enemies head on, aim your lance correctly, and send the enemy player flying from their horse. Just don’t let this happen to you, it can seem devastatingly realistic in virtual reality…
3.) Eeshwar Rajagopalan’s Thirty-Six — First tested at Playup Perth #5, thirtysix is a two-player abstract dice placement game of strategic positioning, claiming territory and outwitting your opponent!
4.) Eeshwar Rajagopalan’s Wick RPG System First tested at Playup Perth #5, Wick PPG is a pen-and-paper RPG system played using cards and coins. It puts players in worlds where every choice is a gamble and burning the candle at both ends isn’t so much an option as a necessity.
5.) BrambleLash by ByteSprite — First tested at Playup Perth + SK Games After Dark #3, BrambleLash is the twin-stick shooter with only one stick, no shooting, all co-ordination! BrambleLash is a two-player game about communication, co-operation and fightin’ grime. Leash up with your planty partner and run sludgy enemies through with your thorny tether, while simultaneously working together to avoid their noxious attacks.
* And stay tuned, as we may have a few more surprise game announcements!

About Play Up Perth
PlayUp Perth is a joint initiative of FTI and Atmosphere industries to connect games developers and encourage playfulness. Games developers are encouraged to sign up to have their new games and game prototypes tried out, to receive feedback from participants, which will help make their games even better.
For Game Developers: If you have a game you would like to test please contact FTI Director of Interactive Programs, Dr. Kate Raynes-Goldie on firstname.lastname@example.org or (08) 9431 6709. We’d love to see some more physical games, community games, hybrid games, street games, alternate reality games… or something we’ve never thought of yet.
