Fullbright Founders To Headline Melbourne International Games Week 2017

Victoria’s annual week-long festival celebrating Australia’s local games development is set to take place from the 22nd to 29th of October, with Fullbright cofounders Karla Zimonja and Steve Gaynor set to headline the week’s Game Connect Asia Pacific (GCAP) developer conference.

Martin Foley, Victorian Minister for Creative Industries said, “Melbourne International Games Week is a chance to immerse yourself in the world of games, learn about how games are changing the world and see how Victoria – the creative state – is leading the way.”

Victoria is home to half of Australia’s games industry with over 130 game development studios and Melbourne International Games Week is the largest games event in Asia Pacific, featuring 14 diverse events for curious consumers, families, educators, game enthusiasts, novices and industry professionals.

MIGW kicks off with a day of free family activities at ACMI’s MIGW Family Sunday: Mario and his Friends event. Consumers can also get their game on playing Wayfinder Live – a mobile scavenger hunt through laneways and restaurants of Melbourne - or explore new releases at the nearby PAX AUS convention.

One of this year’s new initiatives are the Parallels: The Freeplay Showcase, a public event where local designers and artists can demonstrate their games live on stage and discuss their work.

Melbourne International Games Week takes place from the 22nd to 29th of October.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
