Nocturnal launches Game Assessment service for Australia

Melbourne, Australia - Friday, 19 March 2010 - Nocturnal has launched a new website, which outlines details of the Game Assessment service.

Compared to the equivalent services in the US or Europe, the cost of classifying low-budget games in Australia can be prohibitively expensive for developers. By having a title pre-assessed by Nocturnal, the cost of a typical classification can be reduced by 50%.

The Game Assessment service is open to any company submitting a title for Australian classification. Visit for more details on the service.

By law, video or computer game releases in Australia are required to be classified prior to release. Visit the Australian Classification site for more information (

Nocturnal nor the service is endorsed or affiliated with the Australian Classification Board.
