Presented by The Brisbane International Game Developers Association (brIGDA) in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

With some of the world’s most played games coming out of Brisbane and South East Queensland, the local game-making industry is an important part of our community.

This one-day event will allow you to get involved with hands-on workshops, play locally made games, chat with developers and discover more about the folks who are leading this important creative industry.

GO423 is proudly supported by the Queensland Government through Screen Queensland’s Screen Culture Funding program.

The GO423 Exhibition presents locally made games – all presented by their creators and studios. From VR to table-top, PC and console, and mobile. Come and play.

A Game Dev Hot Seat will be running on-stage throughout the day. Get to know the people who make the games as they share their stories, ideas and ambitions and dive into the process of game development.

Game dev Hot Seat presented by local 4ZZZ radio show Zed Games.

Emerging Developer Room
Are you an emerging developer, game design student, or solo dev who would love to chat with an industry mentor?

Do you have a portfolio or resume, but you have no idea whether it would get you work in the industry? Come along to the Emerging Developer Room to meet some of our local experienced game developers, receive answers to your questions, and meet some of our awesome Queensland game makers.

The Emerging Developer room is proudly supported by Gameloft Brisbane
