2019 was a huge year for Australian made games with blockbuster hits like Untitled Goose Game, critical darlings like Void Bastards and brand new Commodore 64 games like Rose's Curry Clicker just a few of the titles made by hardworking Australian game developers.
In late 2019 we asked you to tell us what games you released and we've worked hard to bring you the definitive list. Let us know if you're game isn't listed below and we'll update this story with the details: Did we get them all? Use our website contact form or you can send us a tweet using this prefilled link to @pixelsift.
Thanks to Ash Ringrose at SMG for the inspiration & encouragement to put the list together and helping us get the form set up.
