Games
Forum Schweizer Geschichte Schwyz

2.5 billion people play video games worldwide. The exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the 50-year history of electronic games.

The task of Tweaklab was to make older games playable with the original interface and to search for original hardware. The video games were adapted for exhibition use, for example, the start of the game was simplified so that visitors to the exhibition can quickly get into the game. All games were ported to Linux, the network-based games are accessed via a Linux server.
For the game station with VR glasses, shapely and practical holders were produced, encased with a pad to protect the players.
The entire media technical planning, the programming for the exhibition and the installation was carried out by Tweaklab.

Location: Forum Schweizer Geschichte Schwyz
Commission: Schweizerisches Nationalmuseum

Duration of exhibition: 13.11.2021-13.03.2022
