Delve into the origins of videogames and look at what's changed and what's stayed the same
Videogames have been entertaining us for decades now, but how do they work? And in what ways have they evolved, and to what extent have gaming principles stayed the same?
This talk looks at the relationship between code, controllers, and videogame mechanics – basically the things that make videogames 'tick', and how these things result in engaging gameplay.
Follow-up curriculum-focused activities encourage learners to make further discoveries around the past, present and future of videogames.
Unfortunately at this stage, Term 1 bookings for this talk do not include a visit to The Story of the Moving Image exhibition.
Monday to Friday during school terms
10am-11am + approx 2 hours for exhibition visit
