In this session, Harry will show excerpts from his new game and explain the development and technical challenges of creating it. He will also take you through an in-depth look at his extensive portfolio, and articulate pathways and resources for young people wanting to further their game development skills.
Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn about game development from an articulate and entertaining local designer. This interactive presentation is ideal for young developers or young people wanting to design their own games. It is also a fascinating insight into how games are now occupying the same literary space as more traditional media.
Intermix is ACMI’s program for young people 15 – 25.
This event takes place in ACMI Studio 1 at 3pm.
This is a free event.

Talks & Performances
Identity and Cross Cultural Narratives in Gaming
As independent game development matures and the world witnesses the rise of videogame auteurs, we chat with pioneering Melbourne developer Harry Lee.
Harry is an award-winning Melbourne games designer and ex-director of the Freeplay Independent Games Festival. For his latest game currently under development, Harry is creating an autobiographical story that explores questions of identity and cross- cultural storytelling. He is also appropriating ideas and themes contained in the anthology Growing up Asian in Australia (2008), edited by Alice Pung, and translating them into a digital narrative.
