Australian Game Development Industry Survey 22-23


For IGEA to continue to advocate effectively on behalf of the Australian game development industry, we rely on consistent, meaningful and timely data. With new game development funding measures being introduced over the last two years at the Federal and State levels, it is essential that we have accurate industry performance to measure the impact of such funding – and ensure that it is maintained.

It is equally essential that we present the most accurate picture of the local industry as possible to all our stakeholders. To do that, we require broad participation from across the entire industry.

In short, we need you to help us help you!

This will be our 8th independent survey into the game development sector, and we are asking for your support by completing it for the 2022-23 financial year. To complete the survey, you will need to have an ABN (we don’t need to see it) and be directly involved in the development of games, whether developing your own IP, contracting your development services to other parties, or publishing games for other developers.

You will have received an email with an individual survey link for your studio. If you would like to contribute but not have heard from us, please let us know via

Individual responses to this survey will be strictly confidential and only ever reported in aggregated form. IGEA has engaged Bond University to conduct the survey to ensure your confidentiality. Bond University is the only organisation that will have access to individual responses, which not even IGEA staff members will be able to see.

As per the instructions on the survey, we ask that you enter all financial data in Australian Dollars and provide information for the financial year 2022-23. Ideally, it will help to have your 2022-23 financial reports on hand when completing the survey.

The survey is shorter than it has been in the past. It should take around 15-20 minutes to complete.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact:

  • Ron Curry (CEO, IGEA) –
  • Jeffrey Brand (Professor, Bond University) –

Thank you for your contribution and commitment to the ongoing success of the Australian game development industry.
