Game Masters: The Exhibition – Gamer Fun for SDCC

If you’re looking for a cool event that gets you away from the craziness of San Diego Comic Con, then look no further. From now through January, Fleet Science Center is featuring their newest and nerdiest exhibit yet – Game Masters: The Exhibition. Featuring awesome games, events, and more, this is something to visit more than once.

Game Masters: The Exhibition

Game Masters: The Exhibition showcases the world’s best video game designers, from the arcade era to today’s console and online games. And with 100+ playable games, it’s game on! (No quarters needed.)

The work of more than 30 designers who have made a significant impact in the field is explored through rare concept artwork, newly commissioned interviews and interactive digital displays. This is the first large-scale exhibition to take visitors behind the scenes of how video games are made as well as spotlighting the people who actually make them. From favorites like The Sims and Minecraft to the immersive experiences of World of Warcraft, this is a landmark collection of the most popular video games on the planet, as well as independent games with a cult-like following.

Game Masters is an exhibition developed by ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image). It makes its California premiere at the Fleet Science Center, and will be open July 1, 2017, through January 15, 2018.
