A unique opportunity to experience gaming culture, the Player Festival at Science Museum will inspire those with creative minds and thrill those who simply love adventure. Huge variety An arsenal of exciting games are on offer at the Player Festival at Science Museum, from lifesize Battleships to Polybius, a custom built arcade cabinet which aims to blur the boundary between the digital world and the physical one. One of the most fascinating games however, is Pong, inspired by the 80's video game Ping. It's projected onto the floor with players being able to kick and move the ball around via heat sensors. Games jam In addition to these free gaming activities, there are also ticketed events. For £5.00 you can attend Games Jam, a day-long event for enthusiasts who wish to venture into the computer games producing world. You will get the chance to work with curators and live gamers to produce an experimental game to show off at the weekend dates of the Player Festival.
