A new, world-class games hub will be established in Adelaide’s CBD which will be home to some of the world’s biggest developers, including global heavyweight South Australia’s Mighty Kingdom.
The announcement was made by the State Government as part of a $2 million package that will also assist with the production and marketing of South Australian-made digital games, industry specific skills development and education programs.
The fund will be used to fit out the Adelaide Game Plus Hub which will be home to some of the State’s biggest game developers, including Mighty Kingdom, and will attract start-ups and existing companies from around Australia and the world, helping to develop this rapidly growing industry in South Australia
The fit-out of the Adelaide Game Plus Hub will commence soon and it will be home to digital games development companies, with further ‘hot-desks’ available for large and small-scale productions.
Up to 500 jobs are expected to be created in the industry locally over the next three years. The Digital Games Development Industry is tipped to be worth $90 billion globally by 2020.
