With a very simple and straight-forward statement that is hard to disagree with, "Worth more than $3 billion annually in Australia and over $100 billion worldwide, the Australian Greens see video games as a key component in rebooting our digital future." That is of course if you're fundamentally against arts and Australia being a big player in the digital landscape.

The Games Investment and Enterprise Fund will as the name suggests invest in game development projects plus help existing, successful companies, grow. Senator Jordon Steele-John said the Greens would also extend tax offsets to the industry and further invest into co-working spaces.

"Video games are culturally, artistically and economically significant; the industry in Australia has gone from strength to strength in spite of the Turnbull government and we would like to support that growth into the future. They help shape young minds and tell stories, and form part of Australia’s artistic landscape bridging and feeding into other artistic communities and mediums."

It's worth noting that since the cancellation of 2013's $20 million Australian Interactive Games Fund the following year by the then Abbott-led government, the industry has by most accounts been on its own.

Again, as the opening statement notes - this is an industry worth over $3 billion.
