(Thanks to Gabe for the info)

A “history of gaming” event is about to take place in Tasmania and it’s giving a proper spot to arcades. Called Game On 2.0, this is a follow-up event to Game On which got it’s start at

Some of the arcade games that will be at Game On 2.0

The Barbican museum in London. This one is originating in Inveresk (Launceston, Tasmania) and will later travel onto Greece and then other select parts of the world. Plenty of history will be there for attendees to play and while we don’t have a complete game list to look over at the moment, more will be revealed in the coming days leading up to the event, which begins this Saturday.

Just One More Game has a behind-the-scenes look at the setup for Game On 2.0, which includes a number of classic arcade titles, pinball games and even the recent VirtuSphere simulator, which we have discussed before.
