Sydney game dev clubs??

Hi,

I was just thinking that it would be nice to have some fellow game developers to chat with every now and again.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Jai and I am currently programming games in my spare time as a hobby. I am a "sucessful" independant game developer. Sucessful in that I have completed a game that I am selling online.

If you are interested you can find out more here:

Anyway I was wondering if there already is or if other people are interested in the idea of a game developers club. I would be nice to have some contact with local people in the industry but for people that are doing it on an independant it might be nice to organise some resources.

Anyway hope to hear from people :)

Cheers,

Jai Shaw

Are there any Sydney developers left?? I haven't seen much around! Maybe they've all jumped interstate! Put your hands up if you're an independant game developer from Sydney! [:)]

So true Souri, they have all disappeared.

I read a thread on another Aus game dev site that had some Sydney game dev hopefuls saying Sydney was the best place for game dev and that all the 'real' talent was down there and the rest of the country where hacks?!.
Not going to get into the arrogance of that statement but I find it so so funny that they are all now moving to Brisbane and Melbourne because its the place the companies seem to be lol.

BTW: I don't think all sydney dev guys/gals are arrogant, just the ones who made that statement.
