Film Victoria injects $330k into games sector

Five games get state government backing

Developers Wicked Witch Software, Brawsome, Play-Bit Entertainment, Big Ant Studios and Ivan Dickson and Greg Sharp will benefit from $330,000 in funding as part of the Film Victoria's Games Investment program

"Victoria's games companies are competing on the world stage, and our government will continue to play a leading role in supporting and driving Victoria's growing digital media sector," said Louise Asher, the state's innovation, services and small business minister.

"By investing in five commercially appealing projects, we are assisting games developers to create content that attracts overseas interest, generates further investment opportunities and stimulates the global market."

The five projects are:

• Rugby Union (Wicked Witch Softwar, iPhone).

• Urban Wolf (Brawsome, PC/Mac/iPhone/iPad).

• Puzzle Treasure (Play-Bit Entertainment, Facebook).

• Table Top Cricket (Big Ant Studios, PlayStation 3/Xbox 360).

• Mykola on the Roof (Ivan Dickson/Greg Sharp, iPhone/iPad/Web).

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
