Officials from the British Science Museum in London have revealed details surrounding the final 2007 events for the popular Game On exhibition, which is aimed at illustrating the history of video games as well as exhibiting art inspired by the industry. The exhibition opened on October 21, and will run until February 25th, 2007 at London's Science Museum's Dana Centre. Game On hosted a number of events throughout November and December, including a retrospective titled “Ten Years of Lara”, looking back on iconic Tomb Raider star Lara Croft by Eidos' Ian Livingstone, as well as a presentation by Frontier Development's David Braben on the evolution of game development. On January 16, Edge magazine editor Margaret Robertson will offer a presentation titled “Why We Play Games,”, which asks the question “What effects are games having on society and us?”. Geomerics' Dr. Chris Doran will disucss the future of games on January 22, while speakers from the International Game Developers Association will address the history of video games on February 2. Finally, Jonathan Smith from Lego Star Wars developer Traveller’s Tales will present “Building a Computer Game” on February 6, which will look at the process that goes into the development of a video game, including an examination of the contributions from all of the artists, programmers and designers on a project. The Game On exhibition demonstrates over three decades of video games across all formats and, despite inevitable complaints over omissions and unnecessary inclusions, proved popular with visitors and industry figures alike. More information on the event can be found at the Science Museum’s official website.
