It’s happening and the community support has been amazing already!
GDC starts next week in San Francisco and it offers game developers across the world a chance to gather and catch up. It’s also one of the few times that Australian developers from across the country can catch up, so the plan is to make the most of it. You can see the background for the plan over at Tsumea (http://www NULL.tsumea NULL.com/news/080313/australians-at-gdc13-pozible-campaign).
At time of writing we’ve hit $3300 on the Pozible campaign (http://www NULL.pozible NULL.com/project/18485/), and have 124 people signed up on the Facebook event (https://www NULL.facebook NULL.com/groups/igdam/10151379649289952/?ref=notif¬if_t=group_activity#!/events/506990399351558/).
Mad props to all our sponsors and supporters so far (it’s not too late!), in particular:

Yours truly is going to GDC only thanks to the amazing Australian games community and incredible husband, with particular thanks to Drew Taylor as well as just so many other people! It’s exciting to be able to do the thing that I do over there too and hope if you’re making it to GDC you’ll be at The Trad Bar on the Thursday night from 7-10pm!
