Game Changers

Game Changers is a highly interactive and immersive travelling exhibition
that explores how technological advancements have shaped gameplay in video
gaming systems and transformed the way we interact with technology.

Game Changers - English

This 3,000 sq. ft. exhibition examines how the intersection of audio, storytelling, graphics and gameplay creates the immersive environment of current video gaming systems. Game Changers takes visitors through the evolution of these video game features, from memorable PONG into the photo-realistic, immersive games of today.

This exhibition highlights approximately 140 iconic games, 16 of which are playable, that have had significant impact on game design in popular culture and helps demonstrate how every evolution has helped transform the overall experience – from the soundtrack, through to the storyline.

Developed by the Canada Science and Technology Museum and tour managed by Science North, Game Changers focuses on Canadian innovations that have helped transform the gaming scene and revolutionize the industry.

The exhibition will first open at Science North, Sudbury in October 2016 before going on a Canadian tour until 2020, with a stop at the Canada Science and Technology Museum in the fall of 2017.
