Museums tell stories. Games tell stories. Both in their own way and with their specific intensity. Let’s combine the two! 

Games are an opportunity for institutions to attract new audiences and interact in new ways with existing audiences. How can museums pivot their stories and experiences to become as engaging for broad groups of people as the stories and experiences that people have with games?

According to the DFC Intelligence report (via GameRant), more than 3 billion people worldwide play video games in their free time. That’s almost 40% of the world's population! Given gaming’s enormous popularity, how can museums use the creativity of game designers and players to realise their goals and visions? What would it take for museums to be more appealing and inviting to game developers and the creative scene?

We’ll talk about these questions as they relate to our Game Jam "A World in Motion", which took place just before the A MAZE Festival. Game designers from all over the world worked with seven Leibniz Research Museums to develop a game that connected the institutions.
