Cool Game Masters, 100 playable games opens at the National Museum of Scotland


Game Masters
5 Dec - 20 Apr 2015

Featuring over 100 playable games, Game Masters showcases the work of more than 30 leading videogame designers.

Are any of our Scottish friends going to this?

The DMA link would probably most interest the Amiga Crowd…

but to be honest all the retro gaming and modern gaming looks cool.. I hope they bring this further south

Scottish superstars
From the early 1990s, Scotland has been recognised as the home of some of the UK's leading game developers. For its Scottish stay, Game Masters will feature the work of four pioneering Scottish companies.
DMA Design, from Dundee, created some of the most innovative games of the 1990s, including the hugely successful Grand Theft Auto (1997) and Britain's fastest selling game, Lemmings (1991), which you'll be able to play in the exhibition.

According to the list of playable titles the PC will be used for games like Lemmings, Populous, Sim City and Another World. They appear to have airbrushed the Amiga out of their gaming history which is especially galling since they are supposedly celebrating DMA Design!

There's a small DMA Design exhibit at the McManus Galleries in Dundee, I remember they brought out an A3000 and an A1200 for a games festival a couple of years ago. The A3000 could have used a touch of retrobrite! I've got some photos kicking round somewhere, will post if anyone's interested?

I'll take some pictures with my phone, I just need to find time to attend but I will attend.

I went to a small retro-exhibition a few weeks ago in the Riverside Museum in Glasgow, it was pretty pants to be honest, they had a decent selection of retro goodness but nothing really unusual, just the usual BBC B's, C64, Spectrum, Amstrad, Dragon32 etc, nothing really rare.

I did manage to snatch a game of Nintendos Game and Watch version of Donkey Kong which I hadn't played for about 30 years.

Didn't even know that was on, would've dropped down. Might have a look this weekend anyway if it's still on...

It was only for the weekend mate.

It really only catered for the Console Generation, loads of SEGA and NINTENDO machines but none of the rarer curious machines such as the NEC PC Engine or any of the Apple consoles.

I visited the exhibition in December and found it to be very, very, very poor.

Wasted a tenner for about 10-15 minutes as I couldn't be bothered staying any longer I personally found it that awful.
