The Games Europe Plays

Independent Digital Games for young people and families

Inviting kids and families to learn and play with digital games!

An interactive and playful exhibition, The Games Europe Plays at the Finnish Institute, showcases the most exciting independent digital games for young people (4+) and families as part of the London Games Festival Fringe.

Create and fly your robot, become your own perfect woman and explore magical worlds!

With Games by Gigglebug (Finland), Toca Boca (Sweden), Tine Bech (Denmark/UK), Peter Lu & Lea Schönfelder (Germany) and Amanita (Czech Republic).

The show is the first of a series of three exhibitions initiated by EUNIC London this year and curated by body technologist and digital expert Ghislaine Boddington (body>data>space) bringing to the UK a selection of independent and innovative games made in Europe to experience and play.

Join us on Thursday 7 April at 6pm for Game Play Europe – a conversation on making and playing today and in the future, moderated by curator Ghislaine Boddington. Panellists include journalist and TV presenter Kate Russell (UK), play artist Tine Bech (Denmark/UK) and the Director of the Finnish game industry hub neogames KooPee Hiltunen.
