Hi Playupers!

Last month we got Playup Perth glow in the dark tshirts, and this month we have more exciting news. The Saturday Playup Perth event is moving to a wonderful new venue – Carpe Coffee on Murray Street. Now you can enjoy beautiful coffee, tea and light cafe fare while you play local Perth games and chat with the developers behind them.

And, our Saturday Playup Perth is now an all ages event (children 12 and under must come with a guardian) – so if you have kids who are are interested in making games, this is a great way for them to learn about the game design process and talk to developers about what its like to work in the industry.

Oh, and if you missed grabbing one of our limited editing locally designed by Backyard.SK glow in the dark Playup Perth tshirts, we’ll have some for sale at the next playup on 12 September, so bring your piggybanks! They’re $30 and all profits go towards supporting local WA games.


What We will be Playtesting


1.) tripleqmark’s Bloc – a 2-player tabletop strategy game where you use your agent to influence the voting public to elect you into power!

2.) Bear Tooth Studios’ Super Salmon Migration – an upcoming mobile arcade game. Brave  treacherous waters as you dodge obstacles to get to your spawning ground, collecting sweet magic powers and costumes along the way!

* And stay tuned, as we may have a few more surprise game announcements!
* Wanna test your game at the next event? drop a line to or tweet @oceanpark

* If you’re interested in coming along, please register your attendance here.


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 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.
