2024 Games Resident
Andrew Dowsett

Screen Queensland’s Games Residency is a year-long program for early-career game developers, focused on developing the skills and knowledge required to develop new games and games studios.

The first of its kind in Australia, the residency program is run in partnership with Workforce Australia Self-Employment Assistance provider Birdifi Bridge, with participants provided with co-working space, access to leading industry experts, business mentoring and income support.

About Andrew

Andrew is a seasoned Unity Game Developer, specialising in programming, with over a decade of hands-on experience as a hobbyist and two years of dedicated professional practice in the field.

Primary skillset: programming

Residency Goals

My goal when first applying for the residency was to make games development my full-time job. Now that I have been accepted into the program, networking is my main goal, with completion of one game before the end of the residency a close second.

Residency Project

Planning a game night? Compete in a cross-platform social deduction game show about deception, trickery and fun. Play as a contestant, interrogate your friends, discover everyone’s items and play with the upper hand. Or play to the chaos, spinning the wheel to even the playing field!
