About The Arcade

The Arcade is Australia's first not-for-profit, collaborative workspace created specifically for game developers and creative companies using game methodologies and technologies.

Established in September 2013, The Arcade has come to epitomise the value of a collaborative work environment in which knowledge is shared freely and residents have a genuine care for those around them.

The Arcade provides SME accommodation at arguably one of the best prices in the Melbourne CBD. It's a not for profit space! We can do that.

The Arcade also offers meeting rooms, wifi access, full kitchen facilities (including 3 group head coffee machine) and a communal lunch area for residents.

Most importantly, The Arcade is home to some of the nicest and most talented people you're ever likely to meet.


Rent a hot desk in the open plan area and work in The Arcade for the day! Desks are available for $28.60 a day (weekdays only). If you're interested in renting a desk, please use the contact form at the bottom of the page to get in touch.

The Arcade hosts seminar and workshop sessions for the benefit of companies in the Victorian games industry. These events are presented by independent, external advisors, Arcade patrons and international guests on topics such as skills development, planning, business intelligence and marketing. The purpose is to provide support and encourage growth of small game development companies by giving them access to relevant information, services and technology that would benefit their businesses. If you are interested in attending or holding a workshop in The Arcade, please contact us for more information.
