The popular Game Masters exhibition is coming to Te Papa at the end of the year.
Showcasing a selection of the world's most influential game designers, the exhibition allows attendees to go hands-on with games that span more than 30 years of gaming history.
Featuring over 120 playable games across arcade, consoles, and PC, including Donkey Kong, The Sims, The Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, and mobile games such as Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja – the exhibition boasts games suitable for all ages.
The goal of the exhibition, according to Te Papa, is to provide a platform for acknowledging the huge individual creative contributions that the people behind videogames have made to the industry.
International videogame designers whose work will be profiled include Tetsuya Mizuguchi with Child of Eden, Chris Metzen with World of Warcraft, and Toru IIwatani, the father of Pac-Man.
Pre-sale exhibition tickets, including for the opening weekend, will be sold exclusively through Visa for a limited time from 15 October.
Visa cardholders will also have the opportunity to attend an hour-long preview on Friday, December 14th.
The exhibition, which was developed by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne, is exclusive to Te Papa in New Zealand. Game Masters opens to the public on December 15th.
