Victorian Government funds more local game developers

Three companies awarded funding totaling $75 000

The Victorian Government has been touting its record of supporting local small games studios with the announcement that three local companies have been awarded funding totaling $75 000.

The three firms that received funding are Baffles the Fox, Crackerjack Games and Jacob Strasser.

Minister for innovation, Louise Asher, said the three companies received funding through Film Victoria’s Screen Marketing - Game Release program to assist with the release of projects into the global marketplace.

“This support gives small Victorian games companies the opportunity to market their own intellectual property and capture long-term benefits for their business and the wider games industry in Victoria,”

The minister said the government was also supporting skills development in the industry through Film Victoria’s games professional placements program and games production through Assigned Production Investment - Games.

Since December 2010, the Coalition Government has supported over 60 games projects and committed more than $2.9 million in funding.

Victoria is home to over 40 per cent of the Australian game development industry. Companies ranging from International heavyweights like Electronic Arts to Australian firms such as Big Ant and smaller developers make the state a base of operations.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
