Sydney’s Hosting A Free Gaming Festival Tomorrow

You don’t see many video game exhibits around the centre of Sydney, but this weekend that’ll change with a one-day pop up exhibition featuring a suite of intriguing games.

The festival is Serenade, and its taking place this Saturday at 107, a cultural space in Sydney’s Redfern for artists and experimental exhibitions.

The exhibition will feature 16 different short games, focusing on dating, the black comedy in breakups, retro comics, childhood memories, making new friendships, cooking and other reflective pieces.

Almost all the games are made by developers from Australia’s east coast, with a couple of games developed or co-developed from the United States and Singapore. Entry to the exhibition, which opens from 12:00pm, is free.

Here’s the full list of every game on show.
