Fancy some outdoor giant Jenga? Can you hit the high score in Just Dance or Mario Kart? Want to discover the latest Aussie indie games? Or perhaps still on the hunt for the rarest Pokémon?
Melbourne game-lovers of all persuasions are in for a massive treat on this Friday, as PAX Australia brings a taste of PAX Aus in anticipation of the video game festival’s fourth year in Melbourne.
Game-lovers won’t know where to start. There will be high-score tournaments on the big screen, giant Jenga and Connect Four battles, tabletop board games and even a Friday night concert from local Melbourne video game bands. With gaming areas, competitions to enter and multiple prizes up for grabs including PAX Aus 3-Day badges and other gaming paraphernalia, cosplay photo-ops and huge Pokémon GO walks, there’s no better place for Melbourne gamers to spend their weekend!
As a special highlight, Melbourne International Games Week (MIGW), will display local street art talent with an onsite mural. Painted by local Melbourne artists, the unique creation will feature characters from video games created right here in Victoria.
There will also be a showcase of Melbourne’s finest locally developed, independent video games on display for fans to explore and enjoy!
PAX Australia fans who have yet to purchase their tickets should be sure to stop down to Federation Square to be the first to receive the physical badges before their mail-out day later in October.
