Playup Perth is teaming up with local game rockstars, SK Games to bring you a super duper evening of amazing new and local games, good friends and wallet friendly drinks. And, did we mention there will be two Oculus Rifts for you to play with?
Come meet the developers, play their games and help them make them even better!
We will be playtesting
1.) Offpeak Games’s “Valiant” (Oculus Rift!) – 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…
2.) Daragh Wickham’s “Defender of the Wood” (iOS) Summer is Coming. The realm is in peril! Nasty little Goblin-Things™ have been spotted massing in the forest. The King has assembled his best archers for training to prepare for the onslaught! Test your skill! Find out what it takes to impress Lord Astirian and become… a Defender of the Wood! One person called it “a tour de force in finger pressing.”
3.) Eeshwar Rajagopalan’s “Into the Pie” (tabletop) is a fun card drafting game about making pies for a neighbourhood bake sale. Four to six players each receive a random recipe from the neighbourhood association and access to the community garden. As always, the association’s bureaucracy gets in the way, to promote community spirit, and you must share your harvest with your neighbours. The first player to make $25 wins!
* SK Games will also be showing off their new game Astral.
* 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 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.
