Description

Game/On is a new program of events bringing everyone's favourite pixelated games to life in a retro gaming festival.

The QV Square and surrounding laneways become a paradise for gamers. Taking centre stage is a live competition that invites members of the public to try their luck against professional gamers, during a four-round Friday night knockout, against one of the biggest video game screens you've ever seen.

Melbourne's laneway precinct will transform into a retro world complete with lurid 80s-gamer styling, an arcade full of every old school game you can imagine - think Space Invaders, Pacman, Mario Kart, Pong, Donkey Kong, Frogger - and an augmented reality scavenger hunt with over $10,000 worth of prizes.

If you think you are ready for some gamer-to-gamer competition then grab your friends and get your game on in a Super Smash Bros show down. Competitions are held every Friday from 5pm, register online.

Beyond the game, the party is on every Friday night from 4pm-7pm, with a Nintendo themed candy bar, a DJ spinning retro tunes and a live progressive art installation in Albert Coates Lane, painted by some of Melbourne's most vibrant visual artists.
