Connecting Gamers, Technology & Culture
22-29 October 2017
Thank you to everyone who participated in Melbourne International Games Week 2017 – Asia Pacific’s largest digital games celebration featuring conferences, events and activities for the games industry, games enthusiasts, general public and educationalists.
This year, Melbourne International Games Week hosted over one thousand developers from Australia and overseas who took part in a huge range of industry events including Game Connect Asia Pacific, GCAP Loading, Unite Melbourne, the Women in Games Lunch and the Australian Game Developers’ Awards.
Tens of thousands of casual and hardcore gamers hit PAX Aus and families enjoyed ACMI’s MIGW Family Sunday. The city was transformed into a digital playground with Wayfinder Live – an augmented reality live game exploring Melbourne’s laneways. The Code Breakers exhibition celebrated the achievements of Australian and NZ female gaming pioneers, while Parallels showcased experimental games live on stage.
Once again, the Education in Games Summit helped inform teachers about new and emerging technologies that can support and enrich the delivery of digital curriculum. The Summit also offered visitors the chance to experience how technology is currently used by some of Australia’s most cutting-edge and progressive schools.
