Game Masters coming to Te Papa December 2012
Posted on 14-Aug-2012 12:23 | Tags Filed under: News



Featuring over 120 playable games across arcade, consoles, and PC, including Donkey Kong, The Sims, The Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, and not forgetting mobile games such as Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja; the Game Masters exhibition at Te Papa has games suitable for all ages.

The exhibition profiles a selection of the world’s most influential videogame designers, and the iconic games developments of the past 40 years. Videogame creatives are often little known outside of their field, and the exhibition will provide a platform for acknowledging the huge individual creative contributions they 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.

Presented in three sections, a spectacular live gaming universe has been custom built to allow visitors the opportunity to experience and explore rare original game artwork, revealing interviews with game designers and large-scale interactive displays.

Arcade Heroes focuses on the seminal arcade games of the late 1970s and early 1980s; Game Changers explores the work of the most influential game designers from the past 30 years; and Indies will reveal how independently produced games are leading the way in game play and aesthetics.

Game Masters offers the rare opportunity 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.

Game Masters will be at Te Papa from 15 December 2012 until 28 April 2013. Pre-sale exhibition tickets, including for the opening weekend, will be sold exclusively through Visa for a limited time from 15 October.

Te Papa is New Zealand’s exclusive venue for the exhibition which has been developed by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne.
