Ukie announces London’s City Hall to host spectacular video game exhibition to close London Games Festival
Running at City Hall, home of the London Mayor, this five-day exhibition will celebrate the home grown creative talent within the interactive entertainment industry comprising rare pieces donated by developers, publishers and artists. It will include original one-off concept designs, storyboards, digitally created images, wire framed drawings, sculptures, rendered images and all artistic designs that have been created for use within games and interactive entertainment.
At the end of the exhibition, these pieces will be auctioned off, with all proceeds going to games charity Special Effect, which is dedicated to making gaming, music and art accessible to all young people with disabilities.
Pieces from Guerrilla Games, Sports Interactive, Team 17, Warner Bros, Pop Cap, Aldorlea, Marby, Jagex, Jess Bradley, Kate Brown, Konami, Lady Shotgun, Lauren Mann, Jacob McAlister, Marcus Freeman, Media Molecule, Mikaël Aguirre, Omni Labs, Ronzo, Selena Thomas, and Zepto Lab have already been confirmed – with many more promised before the exhibition opens on 22nd October.
There’s still time to get involved with the exhibition. Anyone wishing to donate material for should get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do the rest. The art exhibition will form the cornerstone of this year’s Games Festival, so it’s a brilliant opportunity for games businesses to get their art in front of a unique audience whilst raising money for charity at the same time.
