The Event: Emulator
Emulator is an annual event held at Bleeding Heart Gallery which celebrates the importance that classic gaming (including 8 bit, 16 bit consoles and arcade machines) has brought to a generation of gamers. The event also promotes the gaming industry in Australia as well as connecting these developers to gamers. Furthermore the whole event raises money for charity!
The annual events at Emulator include:
• An art exhibition that allows emerging artists from around Australia to pay homage 8-bit game inspired art.
• Classic Arcade Retrospective: We showcase a number of original machines. The best part of all, these machines will be 100% playable!
• Challenge Nights: We host Brisbane’s only “Old School Arcade Battle” between local games developers. This is a great opportunity to bring gaming back to a social environment. We also host challenge nights to the public around classic console and arcade machines.
• Industry nights: Theses nights engage the local games industry and gaming community to meet through industry specific networking nights.
• Local Game Developers Showcase: Highlighting games in development and future releases by the smallest game designers to major studios. Allowing the local community to buy locally designed and programmed games from iPhone apps to console titles helps strengthen the local industry.
