From Cletus Clay to Dungeon King, from hack and slash to butterfly play, the exhibition Arcade: Homegrown Video Games showcases the work of some of New Zealand’s most visionary gaming designers.
Take the controls, raise butterflies and build a rainforest in Runaway Games’ Flutter: Butterfly Sanctuary or pit your skills against the gruesome monsters in Bulletproof Arcade’s Dungeon King, just two of the 14 games available for you to play.
Then go behind the scenes and see what it takes to bring games like these to the screen. Explore the graphics, the concept art, the models and the storytelling behind some of the best games developed in an industry that is now regarded as one of the fastest-growing forms of mass art.
Arcade: Home Grown Video Games is a touring exhibition from The Dowse Art Museum.
