Australian Video Game Development Survey

Australian Game Developers – we need your help.

IGEA and the GDAA need to get an updated picture on the size of the Australian game development industry for our lobbying and advocacy work at both a State and Federal level.

We ask that you complete this survey by 6 September 2016.

Rest assured, individual responses are strictly confidential and any information provided will only be reported in aggregate form later this year. You will see further information regarding data collection on the front page of the survey.

We thank you in anticipation of your support and as always, please do not hesitate to contact us at if you have any questions
