Game Night / GAME ON at The National Museum of Science and Technology
Tekniska Museet – The National Museum of Science and Technology – is tasked with saving, making visible and promoting access to our technological and industrial cultural expressions – a mission which reverberates strongly with us! And even more so now that they’ve just aquired the worlds largest computer games exhibition; Game ON 2.0.

The exhibition open on the 25th, and they’re going to kickstart it with a big event in Stockholm; 2 000 people in attendance, with stage entertainment, bar, game related live music etc. They call the party Game Night and sent out a call for a few companies to participate as representatives of the Swedish game development scene. As the oldest specialized game design education in Scandinavia, we were chosen to be among them.

So join us at the party on the 25th, meet our students, try their games and find out why game development is destined to become Swedens primary cultural industry!

At the party you’ll be able to test these games and talk to their creators:
