Come together with family and friends and play unique, new home-grown digital games for FREE.
Back for a big second year, and a highlight of Melbourne International Games Week's program, the Big Games Night In will be a night for families, friends and households to connect, and to celebrate Australian game-makers and play an amazing range of videogames.
Curated by ACMI, the selection of free-to-access games on offer showcase the diversity and uniqueness of the Australian games industry – from beautiful, meditative games and games that make us think and learn like Unpacking, A Long Goodbye and Trios, to exciting adventure quests and hilariously fun games for the whole family like Moving Out, The Adventure Pals and Completely Stretchy and Uncomfortably Sticky.
These games will be available for you to enjoy through the entire Melbourne International Games Week.
This year the Big Games Night In is also proud to be featuring numerous finalists of the Australian Game Developer Awards across multiple categories.
