World first! Unpacking Game On 2.0

June 30, 2010

Many J-OMG readers would have attended, or at least read about Game On. It’s a ‘history of gaming’ travelling show that originated at The Barbican museum in London.

The new 2.0 version of Game On is about to celebrate its world debut in Inveresk (Launceston, Tasmania) this Saturday. After that, it’s going to Greece. Following that… USA? UK? ASIA?

Oh, and that “2.0” isn’t some ‘marketing’ thing. The whole show has been updated. (NEW GAMES!)
