Explore the long tradition of cricket videogames with some of the top creators in the industry.
Over the years there have been a multitude of cricket videogames, from Graham Gooch's Test Cricket (1985) to the latest releases by Big Ant Studios – it seems that as gamers we just can't get enough of digital bats, bails and stumps.
Hosted by ACMI videogames curator Arieh Offman, join Dr Emma Witkowski, sociological researcher of networked game cultures, James Halprin, developer of some of Australia's first cricket games and Ross Symons from Big Ant Studios, creators of Cricket 22, as they discuss bringing the indefinable appeal of cricket to PCs and consoles.
This project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council Linkage Program.
