"I enjoyed every second of it. Makers were delivering feature after feature, and tackling new domains. Plus, the organisers supported us to meet new people and bond over a constant supply of food. It really makes a difference seeing ideas and partnerships come to life."

- Angela Mao

"It was tense and challenging to set yourself the goal of delivering something in 48 hours. As we got closer to the end, the feeling turned to exhilaration when we realised we had built something literally from nothing and started to see its possibilities."

"Fun and exciting. Enjoy all the creativity, collaboration and hard work of game making in just one weekend."

- David Wang 

"Makers Day was a very challenging process, and I enjoyed every bit of it. I enjoyed the company of the people, and it was a very comfortable environment to work on my project."

- Lee Mertens-Weldon

"I thought it had really fun vibes, to hang out with people who were really passionate about making stuff."

- Cat Hoanganh

"Makers Day kind of is a party - a bunch of like-minded people coming together to test, trial, ponder and play. The biggest difference is that come Sunday arvo, you have something you can really be proud of (which is at least 1000x better than a hangover)."

- Jared Bedford

Thank you

Thanks to all our attendees for coming to Makers: Resist! We had a ball and hoped that you created some things you can feel very proud of.

For more information on upcoming events, check out the main makers page.


What we made


Resist

When life gets hard, art gets good. It's time to flex your desire for change, and make something that can make a difference. Or present your story, and demonstrate how you feel with the world as it is today.

Looking for inspiration?

Papers, Please; Big Pharma; even games like Alex use their graphical and mechanical simplicity to provide a powerful message. Think about the change you want to see in the world, then build it.

If you're looking for more inspiration, you can always check out what people have made at our previous Makers Day events.
