WSU Vancouver’s Creative Media and Digital Culture Program presents “Game Changers: Reinventing Storytelling Through Video Games” 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays Mar. 4 through 26 at the Red Lion Inn at the Quay, 100 Columbia St., in Vancouver. The exhibit and related events are free and open to the public.
Organized by CMDC students and faculty members, the exhibit features more than 30 indie video games. Independent game developers have impacted the assumptions of traditional storytelling and reinvented the way narrative games are played. The exhibit explores video game genres, aesthetics, perspectives, platforms and development methods.
A kick-off party will take place from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Mar. 5. The party will feature Portland’s geek band, The Doubleclicks; a performance of “Artemis Spaceship Simulator,” a game set on the bridge of “Star Trek’s” Starship Enterprise; and the “Church of Robotron,” an interactive game installation involving lasers, LED lights and competitive game play. Other events are scheduled during the month-long exhibit. For more information, visit http://dtc-wsuv.org/gamechangers/ email firstname.lastname@example.org.
