NZGamer has sent word that the Dowse Art Museum will be playing host to an exhibition of exclusively NZ-developed videogames.
Running from 10th November thru to 3rd March next year, the free event, entitled Arcade: Homegrown Video Games, aims to showcase the visually spectacular elements of the country's games.
On the Dowse web site, the exhibition is described as exploring: "the graphics, concept art and storytelling of some of the best games developed in New Zealand, showcasing home-grown gaming companies' technical and creative skills."
"Arcade will also include never-before-published sketches, models, and works-in-progress with commentaries by the artists for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the development and innovation of the 'art behind the games'."
The frequency of games being honoured in traditionally high-brow environments is on the rise down under, with Melbourne having recently hosted Game Masters and Sydney set to launch Lunarcade later this week.
