Game Masters coming to Powerhouse Museum

Video game exhibition to showcase influential designers

The Game Masters exhibition is arriving at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum, turning the venue into a video game arcade which will house more than 100 playable games for a six-month period.

Scheduled to open on December 13 (with close date set to May 25, 2014), the exhibition intends to showcase some of the most influential video game designers and games across arcades, consoles, PC and mobile platforms, and will be presented in three sections.

The ‘Arcade Heroes’ segment will focus on the seminal arcade games of the late 1970s and early 1980s, emphasising designers such as Shigeru Miyamoto (Donkey Kong), Tomohiro Nishikado (Space Invaders), Ed Logg (Asteroids), and Toru Iwatani (Pac-Man).

‘Game Changers’ will look at game designers who have had a major impact on shaping the industry, including Yuji Maka and the Sonic Team (Sonic the Hedgehog), Nintendo, Blizzard Entertainment, and Paulina Bozek (SingStar).

The ‘Indies’ category will explore how independently-produced games are leading the way in gameplay and aesthetics, and will include Halfbrick (Fruit Ninja), Markus Persson (Minecraft), Rovio (Angry Birds), and more.

Game Masters will also allow attendees to learn more about game design and development through rare original game artwork, 2D objects and designer interviews.

Tickets can be purchased through Ticketek, and are valued at $22 for an adult, $15 for a child, and $18 for concession.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
