All To Play For: 25 January 2019

How do we play today and how might we play tomorrow? This Friday Late, discover how makers and players are pushing boundaries, challenging ideas of what play can be and how it relates to society as a whole. Solve riddles to find your way out of an escape room and work together to decode a puzzle of dancers. Play newly commissioned videogames and take your first steps in designing your very own, as we explore the future of games and gaming.
