For some time now the end of October has marked the annual migration of the game developers; game-makers from across the country (and world) converge upon the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre to partake in development discussions, networking and celebrations.

So iconic is this time that the Victorian State Government has officially declared it to be the Melbourne International Games Week! The official program for the inaugural Games Week was announced recently by the Minister for Creative Industries, Martin Foley, and today the ticket prices have been revealed. It’s time to book your tickets, prep your games, and get ready for some great game-dev times!
