As Australia’s peak industry association for video games, we pride ourselves on being the voice of the collective game industry. Our mission is to create a world-leading environment that allows for the sustainable growth of all businesses in the interactive games and entertainment industry.

By becoming a member of IGEA you will join a range of other Australian game businesses, ranging from large developers, small indies, publishers, distributors, and platform holders.

Why Join IGEA?

IGEA works for you by offering a range of services in several key areas of focus:

Advocacy & Lobbying

We advocate for the industry through lobbying the Commonwealth and State governments on a range of issues, including, but not limited to developer funding (Federal & State), classification/censorship, loot boxes and microtransactions, copyright, and migration.


We conduct a series of research projects to support our lobbying efforts, including

  • Digital Australia – a long-running research project on who Australian gamers are and why they play
  • Developer Survey – which measures the size and contribution of the local game development industry
  • Size of the retail market – which measures consumer spending on games in Australia

This includes:

  • A contract starter kit

  • Discounts for legal and accounting consultations with IGEA’s partners
  • Webinars & workshops
  • Government collaborations on investment and overseas market entry
  • Access to shared working spaces
