An Evening At The Hillfarrance Future Play Mixer


We just wrapped up our time at the NZ Game Developer's Conference, and it was a blast! We also hosted our very first "Future Play Mixer", an event to kick off NZGDC and celebrate the industry we love so much. Below, you'll get a feel of how it all went!

The Future Play Mixer (FPM) is a yearly event that we host to celebrate the media, content & video gaming industry here in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Last week, we hosted our inaugural FPM in partnership with the NZ Game Developers Conference, where we hosted all of the speakers and sponsors for an evening of wonder, exclusive content & a fireside chat with legendary game designer Charles Cecil MBE.

We also had Rob dressed as a Stormtrooper...

We had a blast and can't wait to do it all over again at next year's NZGDC. Once again, we'd like to thank NZGDC for this partnership, BNZ Bank for their collaboration in this event and our amazing sponsors:

  1. Floating Rock Studio

  2. IGC

  3. Lane Neave

  4. AWS For Games
