About tsumea

tsumea was opened in 2002 as an Australian and New Zealand games industry website which was at the time unique for its focus on local industry news, interviews, jobs, competitions, and information on games developers and their games. It also provided local talent with a place to show off their work to the local games development industry. In 2013, tsumea changed to focus more towards games developers, creative talent, and jobs. Work was spent on making tsumea more social and allowing members to establish their 'games development' profile on the site. While members have always been able to upload their work to their own journals, they're also able to create game pages and game development logs, and allow themselves and others to list those games on their profile pages as work they've contributed to. Who is this site made for, and what would they use it for?

  1. Games developers (of all experience levels and all skillsets, from artists, to programmers and musicians, in Australia and New Zealand. We do, however, welcome international guests as well). This is a great place to show off your work, get inspired by others, find jobs, or to collaborate and communicate with like minded people on making games!
  2. Games companies. You can get listed, post your job ads for no cost, and look up the work and talent listed on tsumea to fill out your team. Just register an account and start posting jobs and contacting talent right away.
