Game lovers and fans of fantasy art all over the world will be truly excited this month as they will be heading to the Video Game Art Exhibition at City Hall in London. Showcasing some pieces that have never been seen before from some of the most recent gaming hits, such as Dishonoured, and classics such as Batman: Arkham City, and also an image inspired by Metal Gear Solid.
The festival, organised by the Mayor of London and the UK Interactive Entertainment association, is held as part of the London Games Festival and the art displayed at this exhibition is certainly one of a kind, with many pieces available to buy through an online auction, the proceeds of which will go to the charity, Special Effect, which helps disabled young people have a better quality of life through art, games and technology.
The publisher Bethesda has commissioned the artists behind the recent hit game, Dishonoured, to create a London vista and the game itself focuses around an apocalyptic city, so there may be a little steampunk style to their view of the capital! The videogame art exhibition at City Hall is the first of its kind in London with many of the pieces on show donated from very well-known game developers such as Rocksteady Studios, Lionhead Studios and Konami.
The videogame art exhibition at City Hall takes place on Monday 22nd October – Friday 26th October 2012, so why not be inspired by these fantasy visions of the future, other worlds and realms with stories unknown!
