We’re plugging in for another awesome year at PAX Aus 2024 - by giving one student-made game the chance to exhibit alongside some of the world’s best indie game designers!

Attention all JMC game designers! This is a chance to level up (literally!) at the biggest celebration of gaming and gaming culture down under, PAX Aus 2024. One lucky game developed by a JMC student/s or alumni will have the opportunity to showcase their creation at PAX Rising- a game showcase specifically created to provide a platform for the best indie game devs locally and internationally! PAX Rising highlights a selection of exciting independent games, including the winners of the prestigious PAX Aus Indie Showcase.

Typically, only established and registered companies are allowed to exhibit their games in the PAX Rising showcase. It’s the most coveted platform available in the country - which is what makes this opportunity so special for the JMC community!

Last year, we launched "Grove Keeper", the game of JMC Game Design alumni Billy Green with huge success! Check out the highlights below..

Included in our PAX Rising showcase package is one full PAX Rising Premium Indie POD (exhibition booth) exclusively to showcase your game, furniture, Internet, audio-visual equipment, PCs, Marketing and Operations of the POD, JMC Staff support at the show, and entry to PAX Aus 2024 across the show days (11-13 October).

It's a fully supported, one way ticket to the centre stage of the gaming world, where you can choose to launch a game you’ve been working on or showcase a game you’ve released independently.

Applications are now open to individual JMC Game Design students or alumni, or teams where at least 50% of members are JMC Game Design students or alumni. To enter, submit an MVP detailing the core of your game and have a full Alpha build ready for PAX Aus in October!

You have until July 31 to submit your creation - head over to our competition Terms and Conditions to see the full requirements for comp entry!
