Player Attack TV: June 19 2015, SE3 EP19

This week, Player Attack looks back at the history of the Australian games industry, covering nearly 40 years of development across this wide brown land.

Yes, last week was E3. Yes, that’s the biggest week in the gaming calendar, but rather than rushing everything, we decided we’d take a week to get everything organised properly. So – our E3 special will be next week, and this week we’re looking at things a bit closer to home.

Starting in the early 80s with Melbourne House and The Hobbit, we move forward through to Krome and TY the Tasmanian Tiger and end up somewhere around 2K Australia and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

There’s been a lot of ups and a lot of downs over the past few decades, so before you start thinking that nobody’s making video games in Australia, you should probably watch this.

Each week, we take the biggest and most interesting news to hit the pages of Player Attack and wrap it all up into a half-hour show. Player Attack is screened Friday nights on Australian subscription TV channel Aurora and in New Zealand on FaceTV. The following Monday, the video is released online as a handy-dandy Player Attack vidcast.

Each episode is available via YouTube, Blip.tv and iTunes – and we hear rumours we may be dotted around the place in other online locations. Hit play, subscribe, and let Jessica and the team bring you up to date.
