iFEST Canberra – Sat 29 Nov 2014

Play the best games you’ve never heard of!

iFEST indie games festival is back for 2014 to showcase the work of Australia’s most promising independent game developers. This free festival, now in its fourth year, provides the opportunity to game developers working without major studio support to show their work to the wider development community and the general public.

iFEST-games-festivaliFEST is running in Canberra on 29th November in the Canberra Technology Park. Unfortunately Melbourne has to wait until 29th March 2015 and Sydney has to wait for 3rd May 2015 for iFEST.

iFEST encourages the participation of entrants from students to start-ups, as well as established studios. The only criterion applied is that games must have been in development in the last 12 months leading up to the festival. Developers showing their work have the opportunity to win a range of prizes that are decided by a public vote.

A key feature of iFEST is the industry speaker sessions. There is a strong emphasis on the sharing of knowledge and ideas amongst the group and this is led by thought provoking presentations from a variety of current developers. Previous speakers include Luke Muscat (Halfbrick), Morgan Jaffit (Defiant Development), Trip Hawkins (EA & Digital Chocolate) as well as Andrew James and Ed Orman (Uppercut Games)

Registrations for developers to showcase their game are now open at

iFEST Video from Pixel Bokeh in Seattle

This is a great video created by Pixel Bokeh. Since iFEST is a non-profit, Pixel Bokeh volunteered their services (free of charge) to help bring awareness to the Indie scene. They really know what they are doing, and this video proves it! Thanks again Einar Johnson, and Antonella Fragapane from Pixel Bokeh!
