Forgiveness for the misleading headline (I’m just honing my modern journalistic skills! ZING!) although it is technically true. No, no one in Australia is officially celebrating this website but they will be celebrating the achievements of certain individuals who made some big contributions to the video game industry in arcades.
Called Game Masters, this is a follow-up exhibition to the Game On event from the past. According to this article at the Brisbanetimes:
Over 40 game designers who have made a significant and ongoing impact in the interactive entertainment industry will be profiled throughout the exhibition, which will be held at ACMI from June 28 until October 28, 2012.
The designers will include Tomohiro Nishikado (Space Invaders), Ed Logg (Asteroids), Toru Iwatani (Pac-Man), Yu Sukuzi (Hang On), Paulina Bozek (SingStar), Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear), Yuji Naka (Sonic the Hedgehog), Fumito Ueda (Shadow of the Colossus), Alex Rigopulos (Guitar Hero), Tim Schafer (Full Throttle) and Warren Spector (Deus Ex).
The exhibition will be divided into three sections: Arcade Heroes, Game Masters and Independents.
Emphasis mine. So some real arcade heroes will be celebrated, which is cool. Guys like Ed Logg and Yu Suzuki have contributed much more than just Asteroids and Hang-On to arcades as well as consoles. Read more about this upcoming event at The Brisbane Times.
