2014 GO423 Symposium

GO423 Routes: 9 – 10  August 2014

GO423 2014 is now over – a big *Thank you* to everyone who made it an awesome event

There is a blog of photos here and our flickr album is available here



This two-day symposium event will return for the third year in 2014 after the success of the 2013 Symposium Space to Place and the 2012 Symposium Foreplay to Freeplay.  We have chosen the theme: ROUTES inspired by the lines from the Frost poem – the road less travelled – because it sums up the spirit of our game making community who take the road less travelled, who adventure into terrain unknown and often insecure in order to make the wonderful things we call games …. Routes is about how we have travelled to be here, it is also about where we might travel to – where we are going and routes we might take from here.

Guest speakers, panel discussions, workshops, test and play opportunities, an open-mic session and much more will feature during the Symposium weekend. The event has proved a valuable opportunity for networking amongst the gaming community and an important opportunity to show case work being developed in Brisbane and Queensland.

Meet some of our wonderful speakers
