A pretty impressive sounding three-day festival of gaming is coming to Macquarrie University in October. Run by the uni's Interactive Media Institute and Macquarie ICT Innovations Centre, the GAME event takes place over the 27th to the 29th of October.
On the 27th, attendees can engage in a public roundtable discussion on The Politics of Play. This will cover classification, video game impact and more, and will include ex OFLC staff, Jeffery Brand of Bond University, and reps from other unis around Australia.
The 28th will see the Theorycraft conference kick off, which aims to explore developments in game research here and abroad.
Finally, on the 29th, it's time for some fun the Game On! part of the event. This will include the chance to play the latest games, mess around with augmented reality technology, and will showcase a range of products from game developers of all ages.
