Play brilliant new games for free when the Best of the Independent Games Festival returns to ACMI. Dubbed the 'Sundance of the game world', the annual festival encourages innovation in game development and recognises the best work of indie designers from around the world.

ACMI presents 14 international award winners that expand our expectations of what a video game can be, from the instant classic Minecraft, to the mind-bending challenges of Australia's own Antichamber. This year's crop also includes the fast and funky sword play of Nidhogg, and Bohm, a relaxing game where the aim is to grow your own tree! We've also included some elegant yet addictive games designed specifically for mobile devices.

Plus, each weekday between Tuesday 3 January and Friday 13 January from 3pm to 4pm, you can play the Best of the IGF games live on the Federation Square big screen, for free!

Coming Soon: Best of the Independent Games Festival 2012
From Tuesday 27 March until Sunday 8 July 2012 a whole new range of independent games will come to Gallery 2. Stay tuned for details.
