From '80s arcades to modern smartphones, games have existed in enough varied, sustained forms to prove commonplace for an audience as broad as Bumbershoot's. Still, as in most creative mediums, gaming's more artistic efforts haven't proven as popular or well-known. Bumbercade will celebrate multiple styles of new-wave gaming to enlighten and enthrall the medium's uninitiated. At the exhibit, traditional, arcade-style games will provide immediate thrills with refreshing new spins on gaming's old tropes, while more ambitious titles will showcase a wide range of visual and narrative risk-taking.
