Members of the games research network may be interested in this pop-up event coming to Future Artists’ Honest Coffee in Salford:

Fans of Retro Arcades and Fans of Virtual Reality get ready!

Arcade Club ‘On Tour’ brings together a curated selection of gaming machines, ranging from original retro arcade machines (many of which are very rare!) and imported home entertainment games consoles to handheld video games like the Gameboy and the classic systems that you grew up with.

If playing a curated history of video games was not enough, then for this pop-up arcade club, we are (drum roll please) for the first time in Manchester, bringing virtual reality to the the masses. We will have an Oculus Virtual Reality and also a Playstation VR as part of the arcade, all with a curated selection of games and experiences for you to try, at no extra cost, and all as part of the entry ticket (we are so excited to be adding this layer to the experience).

From 1st December 2016to February 26th 2017 (Various times)
