Melbourne Queer Games Festival 2021 coming in October

Festival applications are open now until 23 July!

Melbourne Queer Games Festival 2021 returns for another year, looking to “inform, entertain and challenge LGBTIQ players by reflecting their lives in games.”

To be held in October of this year, the festival is currently seeking entries to participate. Applications for queer games are open now and remain so until 23 July 2021.

Applications are made free of charge and are open to developers from around the world.

“There is something magical about the queer game scene and we know you feel it too,” its organisers said in an email this morning. “Obviously we never really want to define what “queer” is but we think currently there are contemporary, autobiographical, experimental and political components to the queer games scene that make it exciting and dangerous and beautiful and unique.”

Organisers continued on to say that last year’s Emerging Developer Award — the first monetary prize offered by the festival — is expected to return this year.
