Dream Arcade is a videogame exhibition inspired by the colorful artwork, characters, and epic adventures of retro arcade games. Dream Arcade features new concepts, stories, and art-filled landscapes with assets created by thirty contemporary artists and designers from around the world. Each of the contributing artists have worked alongside the Light Grey team to transform their pixel characters, props, and backgrounds into interactive playable worlds.
Dream Arcade takes viewers on a journey through time; hunting for clues, traversing foreign landscapes, and discovering new worlds. The varied levels range from lost islands in the sky, ghost-filled campsites, buzzing futuristic cityscapes, and many more. Fight off enemies, find secret pathways, and collect plenty of treasure - all while exploring an artist’s vision and original artwork
