GO423 2018 – who’s in the exhibition?

We have a wonderful selection of locally made games on show in the GO423 exhibition at the Brisbane Powerhouse – actually only a sample of the range of games made here in Queensland – we just didn’t have room for any more this time around. All of these games are being shown by the studios and the actual folks who made them so do come along and chat with QLD’s fabulous game making community.
