Jun 15, 2019

XR:WA is a brand new Western Australian immersive reality festival running in conjunction with Revelation Perth International Film Festival. The event aims to bring together great VR experiences from around the state and bridge the gap between traditional screen and interactive media. We are joined live in the studio by Dr Kate Raynes-Goldie the producer of XR:WA and Sof Mather the Curator of Playup Perth Games Zone. XR:WA is on from the 6th to the 14th of July.

Jonathan Blow has raised some concerns about the global indie development scene stating that the industry has failed to innovate and has become "stagnant". How you define innovation in indie games has a big impact on whether or not you think this is true.

Pixel Sift is produced by Scott Quigg, Sarah Ireland, Fiona Bartholomaeus & Mitch Loh. Gianni Di Giovanni is our Executive Producer. Thanks to Salty Dog Sounds for some of our promo music this week.
