Melbourne International Games Week
Time Out says
This games festival is coming back to Melbourne for an nine-day showcase
If you can quote The Last of Us line by line, if you’ve seen every episode of Critical Role and The Adventure Zone or if you’re addicted to Twitch and can’t choose between Fortnite and Overwatch, then this is the festival for you.
Melbourne International Games Week is setting up shop from October 5 to 13, with events across the city and a huge line up of things to do. This year the festival features some local colour with the launch of True Crime Mysteries: Misadventure in Little Lon – the world's first augmented reality true crime game for mobile. The game takes players back to 1910 and has them solve a real crime from the ex red light district (while also discovering 12 heritage sites across Melbourne).
Worldwide gaming festival PAX Australia (Oct 11-13) will be present for three days of retro, VR, tabletop, console, and PC gaming, as well as live music, cosplay and panels to keep you occupied. Guests will also be able to discover the emerging stars of Australia's independent gaming industry.
So break out your headsets, your handsets, your keyboards and your D20s, and come indulge your gaming needs. Visit the Melbourne International Games Week website for the full line-up of events.
