Somerset House, London, London, United Kingdom
London’s leading festival of experimental games Now Play This returns to Somerset House this April for a free weekend of exciting gameplay for all ages to enjoy. Part of the city-wide London Games Festival, Now Play This invites visitors to experience works from international multidisciplinary artists, writers and designers, all pushing the boundaries of games and play today.
Through a host of interactive arcades, immersive displays, workshops and performances, this year’s festival, curated by guest director Marie Foulston, celebrates the creators who subvert and break the rules of the games they make and play. From challenging real-world systems to reimagining existing games through a series of playful hacks and modifications, the festival encourages players to interrogate and reimagine the rules by which they both live and play.
