Brisbane and SE Queensland has a long and honourable history in the world of game making. Some of the world’s most played games have come out of our city. The game making industry is alive and vibrant here and we have a large number of passionate creative studios making gorgeous interactive entertainment. The Brisbane International Game Developers Association (brIGDA) and Game On are very proud to present a one day pop-up exhibition of some of the fine games made by local studios. Join us, play the games on show and chat to the folks who make them – discover the passion!

More Info

Game On is a game makers’ community program. It exists because of Brisbane’s local, vibrant game sector; a mix of industry professionals, new upcoming indie studios, and an ever-growing emerging group of creative talent interested in the medium of games. Our mission is to foster an active games community and to support the continued growth of networks, both within the local game-making sector and between this sector and the wider public. The program has been running since 2007, producing yearly programs that include talks, panel discussions, workshops, master classes and the annual 48 Hour Game Making Challenge. We are actively engaged with local game production studios, and tertiary institutions.
