pop up arcade in MANCHESTER - 'History of video games'
« on: August 01, 2016, 19:33:11 PM »
Hi

Just to let you know that I am working on the History of video games, co-curated with the arcade club and popping up in a gallery space in central manchester, with over 50+ games across original retro cabinets and home entertainment systems, with information on why, how and when each game was created and with films and installations...

we launch on August 26th and its £12 to play all day (9hrs) and £8 for under 14's

We are currently putting together a programme and wanted to get some insights from you all on 'what makes a great arcade and your arcade memories' and also point us in the direction of any films that we should screen at the event.

I look forward to your replies..

For more info on our 'History of Video games' event head here, we have also created a short film https://www.fatsoma.com/future-artists-studios  8)

That sounds like a cool event.  I'm a bit too far to attend it but I sure hope it is successful!

Going to the final frontier, gaming...
