Located inside Glaziers Hall and open to the public, the Swiss Game Lounge is presenting the best of Swiss game design.
The games, which have been selected by Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD), combine pieces by established studios and designers with works by Swiss students from art and design universities, in particular games designed and created for the MA in Media Design at HEAD – Geneva.
The show focuses on innovative games with a sense of fun and playfulness: great gameplay (game mechanics and interactivity), scenario (storytelling), visuals (aesthetics and graphic design) and/or experimental aspects. Sixteen casual games for mobile devices, three computer games and a playful interactive installation specially designed for this exhibition will introduce visitors to Swiss young developers. Some of them have attained success in international competitions, while others have been able to target specific markets by offering their products online.
The Swiss Game Lounge is the result of collaboration between Presence Switzerland at the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, FDFA, the Swiss Arts Council-Pro Helvetia, the City and Canton of Zürich and HEAD – Geneva, which has curated the exhibition.
