Conference

The Games Conference will cover the importance and relevance of games in modern culture for a broad audience and also provide a dedicated strand for those that work in the games industry.

Games showcase

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.
