Visitors

The WA Games Showcase is your chance to play locally made games and chat with the developers that make them! This year the showcase is being held in the downstairs exhibition area of the East Perth campus at Central Institute of Technology, with greater accessibility, plenty of parking, and more room for more games. The showcase is free to attend, and (weather permitting) we’ll have a sausage sizzle running for your eats and drinks needs.

Exhibitors

WA game developers, we want you at the showcase! If you’re keen to show off your games – any kind of games! – send us an email to and our helpful volunteer team will get in contact with you and register your position at the exhibition.

It is free to exhibit at the WA Games Showcase, and we will have areas prepared for both digital and physical games. We will have tables, power and limited wireless internet available for use; you will need to bring your own hardware, and wireless solutions for any moderate internet usage. If you have any special requirements to showcase your games, just get in contact and we’ll figure something out!
