Finissage! Yarny, Medusa och en elefant: The Craft of Swedish Game Design

Yarny, Medusa och en elefant reveals the visual craft behind videogame design in Sweden. Join the finissage and learn more about the fascinating design and artistry of a design field behind the worlds, puzzles and characters that many know and love. Lecture with Aftonbladet Game Editor Effie Karabuda and a discussion between participants ofthe exhibition.

Videogames are everywhere. We play them on desktop screens and on devices that we hold in our hands. At home, on the bus, alone and together. But what do you actually know about the creative visual worlds behind the screens?
