Gaming is for everyone. The Interactive Games & Entertainment Association (IGEA) Australia Plays 2023 report found this to be more true than ever, with women now making up 48% of Australian gamers!

Diversity in Australian studios is also increasing, with IGEA reporting that 26% of Australian developers identify as women and 5% identify as trans, non-binary or gender diverse.

The SAFC is proud to support South Australia’s thriving games industry through our SA VGD Rebate and through events such as our SAGE: SA Game Exhibition, a super showcase of South Australia’s video game development sector which this year attracted a staggering 2,000+ people over one weekend to experience the best in South Australian-made video games.

Check out a selection of female-led games that exhibited at the SA Game Exhibition (SAGE) 2024 last month.
