Pretty interesting results from IGEA's latest survey on the Australian game development industry, particularly:

- industry growth of 20%
- 1275 full time employees
- over half of Australian studios are less than 5 years old
- 61% develop their own I.P
- 73% develop games for PC, compared to 55% for mobile

I saw these stats and thought that's great!
But the big problem with the stats is:
1. over half of Australian studios are less than 5 years old
2. most target PC and mobiles, which IMO are pretty bad platforms for video games and unsustainable..
