Melbourne International Games Week (MIGW) has been confirmed for 20-28 October, its organisers have today detailed.
MIGW 2018 has a number of returning events in the form of PAX AUS, Game Connect Asia Pacific, Freeplay Showcase, the Film Victoria Annual Games Lunch, Unite Melbourne and the Australian Game Developers Awards.
New to the program are the Melbourne Queer Games Festival — of which Stevivor is the official media partner — the first Esports Conference and a new High Score Conference.
“As the largest games festival in the Asia Pacific, Melbourne International Games Week demonstrates the vibrancy of Victoria’s digital games sector, and Melbourne’s position as the games capital of Australia,” Victorian Minister for Creative Industries, Martin Foley, said.
“MIGW is an opportunity to explore the latest games and technology, to discover the diversity of locally and internationally made games, and to learn about the future of games – in entertainment, education, business and beyond.”
