Freeplay announces 2021 Parallels showcase lineup: a celebration of personal games

Freeplay's Parallels showcase is an annual celebration of heartfelt games and the people who make them. The 2021 lineup is here.
Billy Dent will discuss their game Monomyth at Freeplay's 2021 Parallels showcase

The premise of Freeplay’s Parallels showcase is simple: short talks; heartfelt games. The event showcases personal talks by developers about their creative journeys. Curator Chad Toprak described it as ‘a one night-only curated showcase of some of the most experimental, personal, and culturally significant work being made in Australia and beyond.’

This digital event will stream live as part of Melbourne International Games Week on 7 October at 7pm on Youtube, as well as through the Freeplay ZONE, a unique digital meeting space designed by Jae Stuart and Cécile Richard for Freeplay Festival.
