The exciting games and interactive experiences on display at PLAY18

November 11, 2018 1 min read

Last week, I once again attended the annual PLAY festival in Hamburg, Germany. Alongside workshops and informative talks, the event included an exhibition of recent and unreleased experimental games and installations. As you would expect, propaganda, fascism, and intrusion into the private sphere were topics addressed by many of the games on show, but some were more whimsical and fantastical. As at PLAY17 with the memorable "match as controller" game, games that don't use a standard controller were out in full force.

During the event, I popped into the exhibition hall a couple of times to play and observe the games on show. I was delighted to finally play a good chunk of Not Tonight, but since it received a lot of coverage just a few months ago, I will leave it out of this list. Unfortunately, I don't have the space to talk about all of the brilliant games on show, so here are a few highlights.
