Wanna play some games? You should come. Wanna test your game? You should come.
Each playup, we playtest new games and game prototypes and give feedback to the designers so they can make them even better. All welcome: players, game designers, and those curious about becoming game designers! We love physical games, community games, hybrid games, street games, alternate reality games… or something we’ve never thought of yet.
Great news: this event is also all ages!
What We will be Playtesting
1.) DrewFx’s NanoTek – Two players enter a digital arena to battle it out as NanoTek Gladiators. Using ion shields and particle cannons that launch projectiles from your fingertip, hammer the other players magnetic platforms and send them plunging into the depths of cyberspace.
2.) Eeshwar Rajagopalan’s thirtysix – A two-player abstract dice placement game of strategic positioning, claiming territory and outwitting your opponent!
3.) Eeshwar Rajagopalan’s Icing on the Cake – A four player card game about icing cakes! Players compete to completely ice as many cakes as they can before the central cake is iced. Every cake that is fully iced garners the judge’s favour, while each incomplete cake earns their ire.
4.) Eeshwar Rajagopalan’s Wick RPG System – 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.

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 email@example.com 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.
