This interactive exhibition, open through 2019 at the Baltimore Museum of Industry, allows visitors to immerse themselves in the exciting process of creating their very own video game. Video Game Wizards—Transforming Science and Art into Games provides an interactive environment where visitors can explore how their talents, skills and passions could lead to a career in the interactive entertainment industry. The exhibition's six stations provide an opportunity for visitors to meet game makers and learn about their roles, while making and customizing a game using the skills demonstrated at each station.
Visitors will experience the collaborative process of video game development at every point in the exhibit. At the end, visitors are able to play their own game and share it on the exhibition’s website with family and friends, and will be able to play any of the games developed at the exhibition.
The Video Game Wizards—Transforming Science and Art into Games exhibition was developed by the Baltimore Video Game Wizards, Luci Creative, Ravenswood Studio, Silver Oaks Communications, Cerebral Lounge/Clean Cuts Music, and the BMI. A start-up grant was provided by the Maryland Film Office/Maryland Department of Economic Development.
