A Year of Games From Down Under
Share this post
It’s been nearly a year since we opened our doors to creators in Australia and New Zealand. Since then, more than 200 games projects from those countries have raised more than $1.2 million USD. And this is a big week for games in Australia, as Melbourne hosts both PAX Australia and Games Connect Asia Pacific. So it feels like the right moment to give a big virtual hug to all of our games creators in Australia and New Zealand, and highlight a few of our favorites from their work over the last year.
We’re eagerly looking forward to the release of this stunning hybrid board/card/PC game starring heroic animals.
Jelly God, which was funded just last month, promises to be a weird but fulfilling experience as you inject a gray world with vibrant hues.
We’re already plotting our strategies to have the biggest fleets in the North Sea in this game set in the early years of the Viking Age, circa 900 AD. It's shipping to backers imminently.
It’s tea time and you’re a respectable 1920s socialite in this beautifully illustrated card game. If you missed the project, you can order a deck here.

Fragged Empire is a tabletop RPG setting and rules, with a far-future 'post, post-apocalyptic' setting. Your people have survived 100 years of brutal tribalism and savagery and are just now emerging back into space.
You’re an armadillo…running from a berserk panda. What more needs to be said?
This project is live right now! Protocol E is a strategy game set in a cyberpunk universe. The soundtrack is perfect and the vector graphics make us want to dive into its matrix. Check it out and show your support for these Sydney-based developers.
