As the 2015 Game Developers Conference draws closer, organizers are pleased to confirm that attendees of the March conference can look forward to the return of the perennially popular Videogame History Museum exhibit.
After the success of last year's Nintendo exhibit, and to commemorate Warren Robinett’s groundbreaking Adventure on the Atari 2600 -- which he'll be deconstructing in an Adventure Classic Game Postmortem during the show -- The Videogame History Museum will be building an amazing interactive exhibit within the conference hall paying tribute to the history of Atari.
Stop by the booth to check out the Museum's assorted artifacts and enjoy a chance to play Adventure on an original Atari 2600 console. See if you can find the famous “microscopic dot” to reveal one of the earliest video game “Easter Eggs” and see the message Warren hid in the game; even if you can’t find the dot (it’s quite microscopic, don’t you know) there will be a ton of other Atari games and assorted historical materials to enjoy in the exhibit.
That's not all -- conference organizers look forward to announcing many more GDC 2015 sessions and interactive exhibits in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, don't miss your chance to save money by registering for the conference early -- the deadline to register for passes at a discounted rate is this month, January 21st!
GDC 2015 itself will take place March 2-6 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. For more information on GDC 2015, visit the show's official website, or subscribe to regular updates via Facebook, Twitter, or RSS.
Gamasutra and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Tech.
