Things move fast in both the tech world and politics. Once the darling of the political landscape, it seems the Australian games development industry again needs to raise its profile. As such, the Interactive Games & Entertainment Association (IGEA) chief executive Ron Curry has got on to the front foot with an open letter to Senator Mitch Fifield, the Minister for Communications and the Arts.
The worldwide mobile games market is exploding, generating US$40.6 billion in worldwide revenue in 2016 to now account for half of the entire global digital games market.
Australia’s game development industry earned $114.9 million in the 2015-16 financial year, with 81% of revenue derived from overseas markets, and the industry says there is still huge potential for more export growth.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
