Games Industry Open Day: Made in Sydney PM Session

Games Industry Open Day: Made in Sydney (Afternoon)


Engage with the world's fastest growing creative industry in Vivid Sydney's Games District. Estimated to be worth almost AU$280 billion globally by 2023, video games are bigger businesses than films, music and books – and some of them are made right here in Sydney. You will get a chance to meet the people behind these titles, play their games and listen to a range of industry talks.


The afternoon event is targeted at a more advanced audience. You will hear from award-winning studio Chaos Theory how video games can be used to create a better, more conscious world. Engage with a developer in the Game Plus Unmuted fireside chat and learn how their working life looks like. 


You will also get a chance to hear about how the games industry stayed adaptable during the COVID pandemic. In contrast to other creative industries, such as film and TV, games can be made anywhere. So how do you remotely organise the diverse teams it takes to put it all together?


Just like in the morning, you will get a chance to catch a rare glimpse behind the scenes of Wargaming, makers of some of the most successful free-to-play games in the world. Titles such as World of Tanks or World of Warships attract players in the millions and engage them in captivating online battles. Wargaming operate globally and employ over 5,000 people worldwide. In Sydney, they run one of the largest studios in Australia. Hear about their history, their current projects, and talk to people behind the scenes to better understand the mechanics of game making and everything that comes with it.
