Life challenges gamers to guess the character

In what sounds like the start of a Black Mirror episode or something from the film Inception, Life Science Centre in Newcastle has created a game within a gaming exhibition.

The new online video-based game challenges adults to identify characters featured in its Game On 2.0 exhibition from the cryptic clues of children.

Game On 2.0, at Life Science Centre until 4 September 2019, explores the past five decades of computer gaming through more than 150 playable games. Visitors can also explore the history, culture and future of gaming, including how virtual reality is creating ever-more immersive gaming experiences.

Sarah Reed, Communications and Special Events Manager at Life, said: “The exhibition provides a great opportunity for parents to reminisce with their families about playing early video games.

“Whilst a lot has changed over the past few decades, the children interviewed in our new game selected iconic characters that are as popular today as when their parents were mesmerised by them in the 1980s and early-1990s.”

The blockbuster exhibition is included with admission to Life Science Centre. Other highlights this summer include the live show Super Hero Science and a changing programme of activities in the brand-new Making Studios, including a special visit by the award-winning costume designer Paul Shriek on 19 August.
