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.
