Gamers have opportunity to play latest up-and-coming games

CALLING all gamers to the Queensland State Library.

The library will showcase the latest from Queensland game developers at free exhibition Garage Gamer from January 5 to April 14.

Gamers can play the latest video and mobile games making their mark internationally.

Acting Arts Minster John-Paul Langbroek said Brisbane-based Halfbrick Studios' mobile game Fruit Ninja is on one third of all United States iPhones.

"It makes sense to encourage our local gamers to have fun at Garage Gamer, and play the latest video and mobile games created by Halfbrick, Defiant Development, Curious Bear, Disparity Games, Visual Outbreak and others," he said.

"The action-packed program features more than a dozen creative workshops for all ages and abilities, special after-hours game nights, talks and conversations, a trivia night led by infamous games journalist Yahtzee, and an album launch with the world's first videogame musician, 7Bit Hero."
