SXSW Sydney – 2023 Games Festival Awards
The inaugural SXSW Sydney 2023 Games Festival Awards were held on Friday night at Fortress Bar, a multilevel spectacle including a DnD themed Tavern bar, working Arcade and a large event space complete with a stage and mezzanine area. The awards comprised of both digital and tabletop games with a number of exciting titles in the running, some of which Player2 has covered previously.
