Focusing on key game developments between 1962 and the present day, Game On takes a global perspective at gaming’s fascinating past and limitless future. From the colossal PDP – 1 of the early sixties to the latest industry releases, Game On examines the creative and scientific advances that have revolutionised the games we play. The exhibition features more than 150 playable games, including Space Invaders, Sonic the Hedgehog and Rock Band, together with the ten most influential consoles. See the design process, from concept to packaging, for Grand Theft Auto, The Sims and Tomb Raider. Explore the influence of manga and anime on computer games, as well as the influence of gaming on film. In keeping with the rapid developments of the gaming industry, in 2010 we developed and launched Game On 2.0 . This new iteration features additional content which further explores early games and the latest ground breaking technologies. Reflecting on early forms of gaming, visitors can play pinball games such as Space Riders and The Machines – Bride of Pinbot. In contrast, the ‘Futures’ section of the exhibition features cutting edge technologies such as virtual reality, 3D technology and thought interface technology. Nintendo’s Virtual Boy is available to play and also the Virtusphere – an interactive virtual reality console that creates a truly immersive experience. Highly interactive, all action, state-of the-art, ground breaking and popular, Game On and Game On 2.0 are suitable for players of all ages.
