Powerhouse Late: Gaming returns on 1 September 2022, with the Powerhouse Ultimo partnering with Game Plus to gear up for a massive night of developer talks, board game sessions, Untitled Goose Game shenanigans, and fireside chats.

The night will begin at 5:00 pm AEST, and kick off with a talk from the Sydney-based developers of board game Blood on the Clocktower. Following this, folks from studios including Wargaming Sydney, Chaos Theory, League of Geeks, and Minds at Play will discuss their latest projects, and the wider games industry in Australia.

At the end of the night, there’ll also be a chat with a panel of industry veterans, including representatives from League of Geeks, PAX Aus, No Moss Studios, and GamesHub.

If sitting down for a night of talks isn’t your jam, there’s also a range of other activities you can take part in during Powerhouse Late: Gaming. A range of ‘new unreleased games designed and made by local developers in Sydney’ will be available for testing and playing throughout the event, and you’ll also be able to jump into multiplayer action with Untitled Goose Game, recently acquired by the museum.

Beyond these options, you can explore retro gaming and arcade cabinets from the Powerhouse Collection, as well as view other preserved artefacts that chart the history of video games. The bar will be open, there’ll be DJs playing throughout the night, and you’ll also be able to jump into tabletop gaming sessions with a series of board games provided by Games Paradise, Dungeons & Dragons hosted by curator Nina Earl, Blood on the Clocktower with creator Steven Medway, and role-playing games presented by Exiles Gaming Club.

No matter what type of games you like playing, the Powerhouse will likely have something for you.
