The Grand Unified Games Laboratory-PAX Australia 2014 Post!

That’s right folks! The second ever PAX Australia is in a couple weeks! So we have put together this post with all the info on events at the Lab over the PAX Australia weekend!

As part of these events, Games Laboratory will have a temporary liquor licence from Wednesday 29 October to Sunday 2 November. The licence will cover the whole building, from 5pm to Midnight. This means you will need to be over 18 years of age or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to attend these events after 5pm. No BYO, sorry!

In addition to all these awesome events will will also be running a stall at PAX!

Android: Infiltration Box Art with Games Laboratory playmat

Android: Infiltration added to the Games Library as a staff pick!


This game is awesome. Forget the cyberpunk theme for a moment and picture this:

You’re a thief and want to steal the most powerful (and most expensive) one of a kind artifact in history. Good news is that you know it’s on top floor of a building. The bad news is, there are high tech security measures and personnel around. Worse, there are other thieves who also plan on stealing the artifact and are ready to screw you over should you encounter them.

Make your way up the building, fight through security, work against the other thieves. Then once you have the artifact make your way down, fight through more security and stay one step ahead of the other thieves.

Oh, and the building can blow up.

Android: Infiltration creates a dynamic narrative through its gameplay. The players are responsible for all the twists and turns contained in each session.

I think you’re all going to have a lot of fun with this one.
