we're so happy to see you!

Welcome to the NZ Games Festival website – home of all the information you’ll need about our week-long festival, running 20-26 April, 2020!

NZ Games Festival is a grassroots, not-for-profit festival run by gamers and game developers. We aim to celebrate NZ and Australian games and promote the industry as a tool for social good and old fashioned fun. We’ve got heaps of game-related events – something for everyone, from developers to gamers to kids – check them out!

Our programme incorporates events under the NZGF, Level Up, Play by Play and The Pavs banners - click through the pages in our navigation to learn more about each event banner.
