There are a lot of video games being made in Australia right now. A lot. In fact, it’s safe to say that — right this moment — the Australian games industry feels as though it’s thriving. This exhaustive list of game studios currently operating in Australia is a sign of that growth.
Made by GamesAid ambassador and entrepreneur Benjamin Gifford, I can’t tell if this list is 100% comprehensive, but it’s mightily impressive. He’s tried to create a visual list of every game studio in Australia and — spoiler — it’s a long list.
It’s a testament to how the narrative has changed. When I started at Kotaku Australia the local situation felt grim. Major studios were dropping like flies and there was a massive exodus of local talent moving overseas. Now? There have been a great number of local success stories and the industry is building on that.
It’s a good place to be. Well done for surviving. I can’t wait to see what Australia creates next. BLOODY OATH.
