Pop Up Playground was Australia’s premier live games company. From 2011 to 2018, we worked with many cultural institutions and major organisations, including the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Bell Shakespeare, the City of Melbourne, VicHealth, the State Library of Victoria and the Melbourne Football Club. We also created dozens of independent game projects.

Our games ranged from epic interactive narratives played at your own pace over weeks, to immersive action-adventure games played inside an hour, and big boisterous physical games that left you sweating after five minutes.

Pop Up Playground stopped making and running games in 2018, and formally ceased operation in 2019. Information about our games and other projects is archived on this site. If you’re looking for a game designer or want to contact the Pop Up Playground crew, use the contact page.
