Great emotions and the culture of digital games
From 15th to 19th September 2015 you can play with games in Hamburg! More than 150 events show the creative potential and emotions you can find in games. PLAY15 is annually hosted by the initiative Creative Gaming e.V. and proves that games, culture, education, economy, science and politics go together.
The program is divided into four parts: SEE, DO, TALK and PARTY: PLAY15 offers exhibitions, workshops, talks, performances, a conference and many more events that present to you the culture of digital games. This year, it is getting emotional! The topic “emotions and digital games” is this year’s focus: Do artificial intelligences have feelings? How does a game trigger emotions? Like a common thread emotions lead through all our events.
For the first time, the initiative awards the Creative Gaming Award, that honours the most creative and innovative digital games from Europe.
The expert panel chooses from more than 100 submissions from 20 countries and finally the winners will be announced during the awarding.
PLAY15 is here: Alsterdamm School of Visual Arts, Terrace Hill, SAE Institute, Metropolis Kino, Bigpoint, Handelskammer InnovationsCampus, Uebel & Gefährlich, Ohnsorg Theater, Nachtasyl und Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg.
