On 3 October, ACMI will kick off Melbourne International Games Week with another annual showcase of free, locally made games and demos.

Bringing a sense of the social and interactive to digital events can be hard. It’s an issue that Melbourne International Games week have had to contend with two years in a row — but event producers have come up with some creative solutions. One of these is ACMI’s Big Games Night In, which returns in 2021 to delight audiences anew with a wide range of locally made artistic games, which will be available to download for free, 3-10 October. 

The showcase exhibits the artistic range of Australia and New Zealand’s game development community.
