An action-packed celebration of games culture that has thrilled over one million players of all ages around the world.
Game On traces the development of video games from the very first - Space Wars (1962), to arcade classics such as Space Invaders, Pong, and Asteroids, through to consoles and pc games (dating back to the age of the Commodore 64) and to today's mega-franchises developed for the Xbox and PlayStation as well as future developments such as handless and online platforms.
Original illustrations by Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto and concept sketches behind classics like Tomb Raider and Grand Theft Auto provide unique insight into the creative process of game development. Rarely-seen consoles, controllers, arcade machines, packaging and collectables are brought together in a showcase of game history like no other.
