Event Details

Let's Make Games Inc., with the support of Screen Australia, is proud to present the guests of 2014 Perth Writers Festival special event series, The Game Changers, to #CTRLDEV, a professional game development chat.

CTRLDEV Flyer 500

#CTRLDEV is a professional game development chat with international industry leaders. Two panel discussions will focus on the technical and career aspects of working in the games industry, to complement the narrative and storytelling discussions of The Game Changers series at the 2014 Perth Writers Festival.

What: #CTRLDEV - A game development chat with industry leaders.
When: Sunday 23rd February, 2:30pm - 4:30pm
Where: Central Institute of Technology (East Perth), 140 Royal St., East Perth


Our guests are:

Clint Hocking (Canada – Far Cry 2, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory)
Jill Murray (Canada – Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag)
Dan Pinchbeck (UK – Dear Esther, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs)
Steve Gaynor (US – Bioshock Infinite, Gone Home)
Guy Gadney (Australia – Sherlock Holmes, The Suspect)


The panels will be divided into two sessions:

The Indie Session, all about getting an independent studio off the ground, and what it takes to make a game that can stand out with only a small number of developers.

The Studio Session, with discussions about finding jobs in a larger company, studio culture, and the production pipeline involved when working with internationally renowned and critically acclaimed franchises.

Both panel talks will have substantial time dedicated to Q&As from the audience, as well as a refreshments break in between.


When is it? The panels will start at 2:30pm on Sunday 23rd February. Doors will be opening at 2:15pm, and we'll start the event right on 2:30pm with or without you. So make sure to get there early!

Directly opposite the ABC building, parking is available on the street or around the back of the campus. The theatre is upstairs from the main foyer, you'll just need to follow the signs and friendly volunteers!
