Up to date Game Developer list?

The game developer list on Sumea seems a little out of date. Can you suggest who to contact?

I have been going through the companies to send off emails to everyone I can. Some of the companies have dead links and have no web presence at all anymore.

I am looking for a list of companies worth contacting in QLD, NSW, ACT & VIC.

I am talking about ones that I can send animation showreels to every month or two. Just company names will do. I just want to make sure I am contacting the right ones off the list. Who are the ones you would sell your grandma to get a job there.

Cheers,
Chris

Can you tell me which developer websites didn't work anymore? When I was transferring developer information from the list at sumea.com.au just a month or so ago, I made sure their websites were still functional.

I'll go back over them to make sure as it was over a month since I went through the first bunch.
Just to make sure it was from this page: http://www.sumea.com.au/sdevelopers.asp
It would help if companies that were no longer 'active' had some kind of note on their page.
I will get back to you in a few days.

Still, if anyone can suggest which companies are definitely worth applying to it would help.

Cheers,
Chris

There's quite a huge number of developers in those states (it's almost the entire industry), and I think it's a bit pointless to give you a list of the best developers because it all depends on what type of work you want to do. A lot of local developers have honed their skills on particular game genres or platforms, from platformers and sports games to console and mobile phone games. What kind of games do you want to work on?

It has been a few months as I got sidetracked.
I am interested in doing character concept design in 2d with some 3d modelling & animation to back it up while developing characters.
Character & Creature design, so probably games that are fps, rpg & platform.

I have been on the DLF mailing list forum for a while and they have just collaborated on an open source list of Game Developers & VFX houses. It is still growing at the moment and hosted on Google Docs. I'll be checking that more closely in the next couple of weeks.

Do you know of DLF?
