Can games be poems? Can poems be games? Curated by the National Videogame Arcade’s writer-in-residence, Abigail Parry, and game-poetry PhD researcher Jon Stone, this exhibition explores the potential for literary videogaming, of mixing Shakespeare and space shooters, tercets and text adventures, to create new hybrid artefacts that read and play in new and unexpected ways. Collage your own love poem by blasting hearts, or break out of a room by rearranging words. Traverse islands, libraries, and more besides, as old and new media come together and enrich one another.
