Music + Games events at Melbourne International Games Week
Saturday 5th - Friday 11th October 2019

The Victorian Music Development Office launched its VMDO Games program at Melbourne International Games Week, in order to connect more music and games professionals and open up further opportunities for collaboration in this space.

The VMDO focus on games is in response to the fact that music is an indelible element of digital games and games are very big business. From console giants to mobile chartbusters, entertainment to training and education, pure distraction to complex strategy, the games industry is multi-faceted and ubiquitous. Globally, the digital games industry generates US$60.7 billion a year, surpassing film box office, music and DVD sales - and it is growing exponentially.
