Description: 

Game Changers is a highly interactive and immersive travelling exhibition that explores how innovation has shaped gameplay in video gaming systems and transformed the way we interact with technology.

This exhibition examines how the intersection of audio, storytelling, graphics and gameplay creates the immersive environment of current video gaming systems. Visitors get to “live” the video game evolution, from memorable Pong to the photorealistic, immersive games of today.

Some of the most influential games that have transformed the gaming scene are represented. Students can play 17 of the games that have significantly changed the gaming experience, including Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros., Tetris, Angry Birds, Space Invaders, Flower and Adventure.

Students will also learn about the concepts behind key game developments, play with the technologies behind the games and explore the future of gaming.

Game Changers is developed and produced by the Canada Science and Technology Musuem. Exhibition tour management is provided by Science North.
