I've been told that a few of the AIE lecturers have been letting the students know about this site, so when you do the course next year, be sure to inform the ones that don't, ok ! [;)]

well thats how i found this site originally
had a flyer type thingy on the door

That which makes us human will inevitably destroy us.

Some Quantm lecturers have been telling their students too, so the word is getting around. [;)] I think a site like Sumea is really beneficial for graduates and students.. You can find what companies are doing what kind of games, and it's the only place I know of with a record of Australian game job listings..

I think bigkid.com.au also lists jobs when they find out about them. But this site is definately a great resource for aussie game devs and wannabe's :)

Oh yeh, I forgot about Bigkid [:)]..

Souri - you could try and get some funding from the GDAA or something to run and improve this site if it starts getting much larger than it already is.

And IMO bigkid.com.au is more like a general technology site that does reviews, not a dedicated knowledge site like sumea is.

Blitz's picture

Yeah, i was just noting that it also did job ads for game positions in aus :)

I'm kinda expecting my webhosts to email me any time now that I've went over my allocated webspace limit [:)], so I'm hoping to get funding soonish.. (deleting the Titus demo, and the Infogrames mp3 are temporary solutions to that though, so the site won't be shoved offline or anything).
And yeh, funding would be great! I could get more needed webspace, and hey, it's a good incentive for me to fix and add more things to the site :).. There's tonnes of things I'd like to change and improve.
I'm still currently waiting on a response for sponsorship. I don't think I can tell you who they are yet, but I'm sure you all know of them.. if they help out, it'll only cover hosting though. I might send off an email to the GDAA though.. *fingers crossed*

Daemin's picture

well either the GDAA or the AIE would be ideal sponsors, perhaps even some big gaming studio in Austrlia could fund tihs little operation. Perhaps Infogrammes Melbourne House?

Sponsorship wouldn't necessarily have to be from game studios either. I get quite a lot of google hits from people searching for information on 3D Studio max prices, student discounts, distributors etc in Australia, so Discreet would be a good sponsor too [:)].. in anyway, I might just make a sponsor request page on the site and see what happens..
Oh, and Infogrames Melbourne House would be a great sponsor too. [;)] [:D]

Krome-ians ? Krome-ites!! [:D]

Perhaps Kromers, but that sends out the wrong message... @;-)
