Scope out your options.

Tickets are flying off the digital shelves for your favourite artisanal game dev conference, so make sure to snap yours up before they run out! There are a few different ticket types available, so consider this your quest description.

Conference Pass

Includes Play by Play, Treat & Greet

Early Bird Pricing: $185
Add a ticket to the Pavs: $65

Our Conference Pass gives you access to our Play by Play Conference and our delicious networking event, Treat & Greet! This is a great ticket option if Awards Nights and workshops aren’t your thing.

Student Conference Pass

Includes Play by Play, Treat & Greet

Early Bird Pricing: $95
Add a ticket to the Pavs $65

Industry events are a great opportunity for students to grow their real-world knowledge and network but aren’t easy to get to on a student budget. That’s why we have a Student Ticket option available, which gives you access to both Play by Play and Treat & Greet.

Get in quick, because there are only 30 student tickets this year, and these bad boys sell out fast. You’ll need to bring your student ID with you on the day to collect your badge.

Pav Awards ticket

Pavs Award Pass – Early Bird Pricing: $80
Pavs Award Pass Student- Early Bird Pricing: $65

A ticket to the Pavs gives you a wonderful night of gameful entertainment as we award and celebrate Aotearoa’s best games!

Pay it Forward program

Includes Play by Play, Treat & Greet

Donation: $150

We realise that the ticket cost does exclude people from attending who might otherwise find it very useful, or discourage those who may be under-resourced or under-represented in our industry. This is an opportunity to pay it forwards by buying a ticket to Play by Play and the Pav Awards for someone in need.

Fair Play Programme

Free access to Play by Play, Treat & Greet, The Pavs: NZ Game Awards, Developer Workshops


Inclusivity is one of Play by Play’s core values, which is why we’ve implemented the Fair Play programme. If you’re an under-resourced or under-represented developer and the ticket price is a barrier for entry to you, we encourage you to apply for Fair Play. Please don’t self-eliminate – all applications are welcome.
