The Games Festival offers not only Australia’s biggest curated showcase of independently made games, but offers an exhibition experience for indie developers designed to be as frictionless as possible, including zero-cost booths and options for remote showcasing for international studios. Our ambition is to build a showcase that represents an international cross-section of the best emerging work being done in independent development with a distinct APAC flavour.
