Game Masters – The Exhibition

As a video game player, you tend to spend time on your chosen system in physical isolation, with perhaps a handful of online buddies playing a game you all enjoy.
The only time you would “down tools” (or controllers),  was for the occasional video gaming event or exhibition where you could share your passion with like-minded gamers.
Well, it is time to down your controllers. Game Masters: The Exhibition is in town!

Game Masters: The Exhibition

“How would you like to to play Yu Suzuki’s full-body 1980s arcade games, including Out Run; take a dance challenge in Alex Rigopulous and Eran Egozy’s Dance Central 2; test yourself in a four-player version of Firemint’s Real Racing 2; and be immersed in a 3D display of Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s Child of Eden” – Sounds like a dream come true !

Gamers rejoice ! Game Masters is coming to town. The highly interactive videogame exhibition will be at ACMI (the Australian Centre for the Moving Image) from 28 June till 28 October 2012.


As part of this exhibition, there will be a showcase of work from local and international videogame designers, with over 125 playable games (woohoo !) from the arcade era through to the latest consoles, PC and mobile gaming platforms.


Hold onto your hats, the list of games from world renowned game designers (from the pioneers to the contemporaries) reads like a who’s who of the videogaming industry.
