Australia’s premier digital games festival returns from 2-10 October and this year’s packed online program celebrates the fun and fantasy of games as well as exploring games for good, games as art and games that grow industry and business.
In 2021, games are so much more than a TV screen and a console. From diagnostics in health to enacting social change, a surprising range of industries are working with games and game makers to achieve more. This year, Melbourne International Games Week (MIGW) shows how games connect, inspire, and educate, help us heal and learn, and create new ways to make art as well as do business.
Melbourne is the epicentre of the digital games industry in Australia and each year MIGW brings together homegrown and international industry to showcase, celebrate and build capability and connections. Australia’s games industry has not only survived but thrived during COVID-19 and has proven its resilience as a creative industry.
MIGW’s responsive and dynamic 2021 program – delivered online – speaks to the depth and breadth of the industry, unearthing unexpected ways games are making the world a better place and providing other industries with innovation.
