Digital Awards Ceremony
As Australia’s longest-running independent games festival, Freeplay positions game making as arts practice and promotes critical, experimental, and cross-disciplinary engagement.
Join this online showcase of some of the most unique, experimental, and personal independent games being made in Australia and beyond in a virtual 8-bit replica of The Capitol.
For over fifteen years, Freeplay Independent Games Festival has been exploring the margins of games culture – the artistic, the weird, the provocative and the punk – to uncover emerging and exceptional makers from bedroom coders to artists pushing the boundaries of the artform. This now digital event includes nominees demonstrating their creations live on stage and sharing their origin stories, creative inspirations and intimate journeys.
