Last month we got Playup Perth glow in the dark tshirts, and this month we have more exciting news. The Saturday Playup Perth event is moving to a wonderful new venue – Carpe Coffee on Murray Street. Now you can enjoy beautiful coffee, tea and light cafe fare while you play local Perth games and chat with the developers behind them.
And, our Saturday Playup Perth is now an all ages event (children 12 and under must come with a guardian) – so if you have kids who are are interested in making games, this is a great way for them to learn about the game design process and talk to developers about what its like to work in the industry.
Oh, and if you missed grabbing one of our limited editing locally designed by Backyard.SK glow in the dark Playup Perth tshirts, we’ll have some for sale at the next playup on 12 September, so bring your piggybanks! They’re $30 and all profits go towards supporting local WA games.

Each playup, we playtest new games and game prototypes and give feedback to the designers so they can make them even better. All welcome: players, game designers, and those curious about becoming game designers! We love physical games, community games, hybrid games, street games, alternate reality games… or something we’ve never thought of yet.
