Nope - Sydney.
May move to Melbourne to get a gaming job someday, though!  Angry


I didn't want to start an OT discussion, but gaming jobs in Melbourne?
Have I been living under a rock?
Where are these jobs?
Aren't they being outsourced?

Is there a name for a "redneck" programmer?

My understanding (purely from reading around a bit) is that Melbourne is the centre of Aussie games development, closely followed by Brisbane.
This doesn't mean that there's heaps of it going on in either city, though.

There's definitely game dev courses at Deakin, and I think other places, too.

Here's a list of AU companies that presented at E3 2004:

It doesn't have their locations, but you can follow the links and find out for yourself (which is I think how I came to my previous conclusion).

Why am I still up at 1:43 AM?  Cry

Sorry - missed this question.

I believe the opposite is true.
Professional labour is often cheaper in Australia than in other countries, so quite a few OS developers are setting up shops here.
Aussies are also known (so I've heard) for being very hard workers, which is a must-have in the games industry (i.e. a love of pain).

You must've misheard.  Can't have been Aussies.  Must've been NZers.   Tongue

I don't know why, but people seem to be scared of hiring New Zealanders.   Wink
