Back for an even bigger third year, and a highlight of Melbourne International Games Week's program, the Big Games Night In is an opportunity 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, and will be available for you to enjoy through the entire Melbourne International Games Week.

This year players can take the role of an adorably wooly cult leader in Cult of the Lamb, enjoy some spooky synth-pop puzzling with A Halloween Valentine, explore beautiful and fantastical worlds in e-Scape and Drive Me to the Moon and much more.

Once again the Big Games Night In is also proud to be featuring numerous finalists of the Australian Game Developer Awards across multiple categories.
