As part of the Berlin gamesweek, this year’s A MAZE festival opened its doors from April 10 to 13 to present talks, workshops and exhibitions from the field of art and culture and playful media. Being the Gamescom’s little artsy-fartsy sister, inclined visitors had the chance to experience mind-blowing VR installations, crazy indie games and other media that go way beyond mainstream gaming. Main topics were inclusion, politics, playfulness, and experimental visuals – all of it with a great and wide international focus
The Computerspielemuseum in Berlin is celebrating its 20th birthday this year. One of the events commemorating this occasion was an international conference titled “Computer Games as Cultural Artefacts…”, which took place on the 14th-15th of September.
