Today we’re very excited to announce that AustralianGamer has merged with Gameplanet to create New Zealand and Australia’s first local gaming media network.

AustralianGamer will now operate as Gameplanet Australia, with the great staff led by Matt Burgess and Guy ‘Yug’ Blomberg joining our team.

AustralianGamer is one of the oldest independent gaming sites across the Tasman, and we’re looking forward to growing our two sites together.

Already we’ve kicked off with a fantastic feature by Yug outlining five incredible Australian games that never made it out of the development studio, including an adaptation of Frank Miller’s Sin City.

Why not pop over and take a look?
