This April 21-23 is the 'pop culture expo' event Supanova, to be held at the RNA showgrounds. There will be a pure Queensland Games section of the expo, with THQ, Pandemic, Auran, Krome, Half Brick, Sony etc. all cooperating to raise the profile of the games industry, in regard to employment opportunities rather than games sales. Check out www.supanova.com.au
There will be prizes, promo video materials, presentations and various game-centric competitions or behind-the-scenes sessions.
I've just put up the Queensland Games stage program for Supanova which Truna has just sent in. [url="http://www.sumea.com.au/sarticle.asp?art_ID=48"]Check it out here[/url]. It looks like an awesome event indeed.
I?m looking forward to it. It?s so good that there will be a Queensland games section this year. Some of the presentations look interesting.
Last year I wasted sooo much money on graphic novels and bits and pieces.. but I?m about ready to stock up again.
And of course this year we get to meet Summer Glau a.k.a. River from FireFly:
Just a note that Truna has sent in the complete program for the games stage which I have [url="http://www.sumea.com.au/sarticle.asp?art_ID=48"]up at on Sumea[/url].
I haven't been to a Supanova either, Angel, but yeh, very tempted to go!
Don't forget it's Sydney's turn in October.
Angel - it really depends how much you like comics and manga and sci-fi etc. Personally, I really enjoyed it last year and look forward to this years, but I'm not sure if I'd be willing to travel almost 2000 km's for it.. But that's just me, and I'm a poor student..
So yeah, hard to say if it would be worth it - depends on your circumstances :)
The IGDA is also oranising a bunch off cool stuff to happen there, more on this very soon...
