Innovative, technology-based and packed with "jobs of the future", Australia's video game industry has the potential to drive our next big "clean" export. Global revenue for games is expected to reach $US98 billion in the next two years. In the last financial year, 81 per cent of Australia's game development industry income came from overseas markets.
