Global Games Family Day
Writing »Family Day« within the Minecraft-Game
Sun, October 11, 2015 11 am – 6 pm CEST, Celebration

With a good third of the »GLOBALE«  behind us, a whole day at the ZKM will revolve around games! Not only can the games that have become favorites from the »Global Games« be discovered here, the new addition of the exhibition: The Bird Flight Simulator »BIRDLY« can also be seen. If you’ve ever wanted to know how it feels to fly, then you must not miss this!

At the »Global Games Family Day«, the whole family can enjoy an exciting day with activities and tours through the exhibitions of the ZKM. An introduction to the games in the »Global Games« exhibition will be given on the day by young people from Karlsruhe, who are involved in the »Kopf Über« [Head Over] project of the ZKM. They will be happy to help and advise gamers.

A highlight of the day will be the presentations of the involved game developers at the »Melting Pot« Global Jam. The GameLab of the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG) will be presenting games which were produced during the 48 hour period of Friday and Saturday. In todays globalized and digitalized world, people of all generations and cultures meet each other. Just like in a »melting-pot«, frictions and inspiration arise, sparks and new unimagined possibilities. The results of this Jam will be characterized equally.

To conclude, the »Night of the Retold Game« will be taking place in the ZKM_Foyer from 6 pm, to which you are all warmly invited!
