Those already in the industry will also have the opportunity to learn more about game development from a career and government perspective during the exhibition, with Screen Australia and the South Australian Film Corporation both on-hand to discuss funding opportunities, and how government support for video games is growing.

Here’s the full list of games and creators set to be on show at SAGE 2024:

A secondary showcase, SAGE Elevate, will also provide a platform for emerging studios and their projects: 7D Games Studio (Spellborn), ABM Visual (Cryptic Cabin), Cerulean Creative Studios (Crimson Cutlass), Golden Age Studios (Seeker Neko), Jazz King (Beach Bums), Jonniemadeit (Uncle Unco), Solar Lightshow (The Light I Promised You) and Towerpoint Games (ANVILHEART).
