Event details

From Space Invaders to Sonic, Minecraft to Mario, Game On 2.0 is an exhibition on the past five decades of computer gaming.

 

Explore the vibrant history, culture and future of gaming, entertainment and technology through more than 150 playable games. Retro aficionados can play on consoles from the 1970s with a dedicated arcade games section, including Pac-Man, Defender and Donkey Kong. Grab your friends, family and dance partners to have a go on multiplayer games such as Just Dance and Wii Sports Resorts. In the ‘Futures’ section, you can learn about the continuing development of gaming, including how virtual reality is making ever-more immersive experiences.

Game On 2.0 has been organised and toured by Barbican International Enterprises.
