Cyberport to hold Game On exhibition in Asia

MUMBAI: Cyberport is holding the Game On exhibition in Asia to explore the vibrant history and culture of computer games. Focusing on key developments between 1962 and the present day, it takes an in-depth look at gaming‘s past and future.

Building on the success of previous tours in Europe and the US, Game On will be staged at Cyberport this year till 7 October in Hong Kong.

In recent years, the improvement in Taiwan and Hong Kong‘s local game development is obviously catching up with the international players. Meanwhile, China is also generating a revolutionary beginning in the creative games industry. The amount of mainland game consumers is increasing day by day, at a surprising pace.

As a liaising platform for Asia, and the greater China region, Hong Kong maintains an influential role in the game development industry.

Cyberport CEO Nicholas Yang says, "The creative game industry has now been developing for more than four decades. The industry has been developing at a surprisingly fast pace, whether in terms of technology or popularisation.

"Cyberport, being the digital entertainment hub in Hong Kong, will bring Game On to the Hong Kong public to experience gaming from the world‘s first computer game to the latest game systems for the first time ever. I think that
this is a valuable opportunity for Hong Kong game lovers and family groups to visit this world-class exhibition."

Game On is suitable for players of all ages, which will showcase more than 120 classic and modern games, in more than 10 areas of interests in the exhibition. Visitors will be able to play and experience them personally, to learn from the impacts of games on modern culture, as well as to re-live the memorable past.

In addition, to advocate a healthy game-playing attitude, Cyberport will also organise a "Game Ambassador programme", in partnership with Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) & Caritas Community Centre -- Aberdeen. Young
people will be recruited as Game Ambassadors to promote and arouse the public‘s interest in the positive gaming message.

The Mega Power Show and a series of seminars and workshops held in August will also help reinforce positive attitudes in game playing.
