Interzone Games are a new games company looking to setup in either Perth or Melbourne. I had an opportunity to talk with Robert Spencer (COO) and Mike Turner (Producer) as an ex-60Hz member of OneTwenty.
They both come off as very genuine and driven people, and they have considerable experience developing AAA game titles. The Perth game development scene is mostly comprised of indie developers working within very limited budgets. A large game studio could really invigorate the local community and I hope that Interzone decide to base their high-profile game development projects in Perth.
They will be speaking at the IGDA Perth Chapter social event tomorrow night. This is all the more reason for anyone in Perth interested in game development to come along to the IGDA event. I’ll post a writeup of the event soon after it happens.
