Game Developers Matt Trobbiani and Chris Johnson are best friends. They do everything together. They grew up together. They did a Computer Science degree together. They made video games together, released video games together. But when Matt released Hacknet and Chris Johnson released Expand, everything changed. One…
A monthlong Gizmodo investigation has uncovered compelling and perplexing new evidence in the search for Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin. According to a cache of documents provided to Gizmodo which were corroborated in interviews, Craig Steven Wright, an Australian businessman based in Sydney,…
Every online community has some small element that is difficult to discern from scum, and the Counter-Strike community is certainly no exception to that. But in a new interview, one Australian player revealed just how absurd things have become.
“Enough Australian lingo to choke a dingo” is something I’m not proud of saying in the opening moments of the first Ty the Tasmanian Tiger game in almost a decade.
Chris didn’t think much of Mad Max. I, on the other hand, am having some fun with it, though it might help that being an Australian who already lives in an interior wasteland I’m a little closer to the source material than he is.
Most retailers are suffering a shortage of certain rare Amiibo—some figurines, you just can’t find in a shop. Unless, of course, you happen to live in very specific places. Then you might be able to find just about any Amiibo you want.
Ah JB, you truly are the cheeky little schoolboy of Australian retail. First it was your incredible in-store reviews, now it’s stores throughout the country taking sly potshots at Konami’s decision to remove Hideo Kojima’s name from the cover of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
“We were all on Adderall,” Kory “SEMPHIS” Friesen said. That was the moment when the latest eSports scandal kicked off in earnest.

Are there kids out there who think the real world actually works like Minecraft? Geoscience Australia, a department of the federal government, seems to think so.
2K Australia, a veteran studio that’s worked on everything from Freedom Force to Tribes to BioShock to Borderlands, was shut down today. Kotaku Australia has the story.
Wildfire is a 2D stealth game from a small four-man team, and it’s already shaping up to be one of the more interesting takes on sneaking around that I’ve seen in a while.
That's pretty much Australia, right?
So, this is Rich Gang eThugs. They're an Australian team that competes in League of Legends' Oceanic Pro League. And, in keeping with the spirit of their name, their members just keep on getting suspended.
Some kid's show messages are universal: stranger danger, just say no, don't climb into a tumble dryer, etc. Others are more specific to location. Enter Peppa Pig and the controversial-in-Australia message that "spiders are not to be feared."
We get a lot of people pitching their indie games to us here at Kotaku. Some of these pitches are dreadful, others tolerable, but sometimes you get one that just nails it.
Armello hit early access today. I've been playing it this afternoon and it's pretty good! Gorgeous, as expected, but be warned: as advertised, it's very much a card game, so don't go into it expecting a more video game-like RPG experience.
