More people than ever play video games, whether casually on their smartphone or as an immersive, social experience. But few people realise that here in Royal Leamington Spa we are surrounded by games developers who have helped to shape the life of the town for more than 30 years.
Leamington is the centre of one of the oldest and largest clusters of video games companies in the UK, making a significant impact on the global stage and employing some 2500 people. They work in all kinds of roles, from concept art to coding, and sound design to community engagement.
This exhibition will trace the history of the gaming industry in Leamington and the surrounding area and give a glimpse into the working lives of games developers.
