Winteractive: The Art of Video Games

. March 28, 2016.

The exhibition features games strictly from indie and small developers that blur the line between entertainment and art. The exhibition is hands-on experience, so visitors are welcome to test out games that get creative with sound and beauty and push the boundaries of what video games can be. Runs until Friday, April 15.
