17 Take a look: 40 great Aussie games

As part of the opening festivities for GCAP last week, The People’s Republic of Animation put together a bit of a showreel highlighting a whole bunch of Australian games, to show off what the local talent has been getting up to.

The intention was to have a 60-second trailer showing quick glimpses of a handful of games. Developers were invited to submit footage to The PRA through an FTP site, which quickly was filled to capacity. After the files had been moved off and the site opened up again, it quickly filled up, again.

By the end of the project, the showcase was nearly four times longer than anticipated, featuring forty Australian developers and the amazing projects they’ve been working on recently.

You can catch the showcase as part of our Welcome address stream (skip to around 5:20 – obviously the stream is no longer live), but we’ve also got it right here for you in glorious, all-Australian quality.
