Australian Videogames Released in 2018 ↓ ↓ ↓ SUBMISSION FORM ↓ ↓ ↓

This spreadsheet is an attempt to create a database of every videogame created in Australia or by Australians in 2018 to get a fuller sense of the diverse range of videogame development activities happening in Australia. It is populated via a form that I circulate once a month to various developer Facebook groups and Twitter. If you are Australian or reside in Australia and released a game in 2018, please add it to the list via the form in the cell to the right.

NOTE: This is a list of games that have already been released, not a release schedule for the future.

Any questions or issues, shoot me an email at brendankeogh86@gmail.com or tweet me at @brkeogh
