History of Hip: Video Games

  • Historic Hamm Building 408 St. Peter St. Saint Paul, MN 55102 United States (map)

This is a 21+ event at the historic Hamm Building.

From the website: "Video games have become as integral to our culture as TV or movies, offering complex narratives and immersive experiences, a potent starting point for exploring and understanding history. Join Andrew Williams and Dave Beck of the School of Art & Design at University of Wisconsin-Stout to explore the past and future of video games. They will discuss key moments in video game design, the use of history in video game narrative, and Beck's development of Tombeaux, a first-person exploration game set in a historically accurate 3D environment."
