Every Australian And New Zealand-Made Game Released In 2024

Find out what Aussie and New Zealand developers are releasing in 2024

Here we are once again, the beginning of a new year brimming with potential and excitement, and like the years passed, 2024 promises to be another great year for Australian and New Zealand-made video games. As is tradition, we’ll be doing our best to catalogue every single Australian and New Zealand-made video game released in 2024, so you can find them all in one location.

This list is for new releases, ports or games entering 1.0. Moreover, your game doesn’t have to be released on major storefronts such as Steam – it can be a game that is available on itch.co or any other platform. Like last year it will be updated over the year as more games get release dates. Unfortunately, we will miss some games (apologies in advance), so if we’ve missed your game or you want to reach out about adding your game to this list, please email admin@well-played.com.au. Alrighty, cut yourself a slice of pav and crank some Crowded House, let’s check out the Australian and New Zealand-made games releasing in 2024.

If you released a game last year that isn’t included in our games that Australian and New Zealand-based studios released in 2023 article hit me up by emailing admin@well-played.com.au and I’ll make sure it’s added.
