The Melbourne IGDA Chapter is holding a LAN party for Melbourne Videogame Developers and Publishers on April 1st.
The event will start at 10am and will be hosted at Torus Games in Mitcham. There will be a number of competitions (and prizes!) held across the day, with titles in RTS, FPS and Racing genres. It is a BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) LAN party and spaces are limited, so you'll need to pre-register before hand.
If you're not the LAN type? Well that's okay, we have plenty of other events to entertain you including a Mario Kart DS competition and console games on a projector screen (think Singstar, Buzz and DDR). There will also be tables set up for Warhammer 40K and other table top games.
Registration for LAN seats is currently limited to developers, publishers, and their guests. There will be seats available to students at a later date, so keep your eye out for an annoucement. Current pricing is at $18 per LAN seat reserved and $13 for all other entry. Price does include a yummy BBQ lunch and all proceeds will be donated to a charity of choice (support your favourite charity and place a vote on the event's website found below).

Hope to see you there,
