Going down at The Toff in Town, Games Gig comprises a lineup of queer, trans, and First Nations artists each performing their own gaming compositions.

As part of Freeplay Festival – the world’s longest-running independent games festival – a bunch of indie game sound designers are getting together to play a gig celebrating the sounds of gaming.

Happening at The Toff in Town on Thursday June 10, Games Gig will showcase a lineup of queer, trans, and First Nations artists each performing their own gaming compositions on stage.

Keep up with the latest festival news, reviews and interviews here.

The gig will feature performances from Monster Mansion, the solo synth-pop project from songwriter and game developer Jacob Leaney; composer, sound designer, and audio programmer, Maize Wallin; the new solo project of Narayana Johnson (Willow Beats), River Boy; and composer and sound designer, Allison Walker.

Punters can expect to hear tunes from games such as Justice Sucks: Recharged, God FallReceiver 2Wayward Strand, Cosmic Express, and more, as well as a bunch of original tracks.

Unlike typical game music gigs which tend to exhibit orchestral or chiptune renditions of game soundtracks, Games Gig will focus on electronic and pop music stylings that everyone can enjoy, whether you’re a gamer or not.
