Raiders of the Lost Arcade @ D. H. Hill Library Fishbowl Forum
Feb 20 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Raiders of the Lost Arcade @ D. H. Hill Library Fishbowl Forum | Raleigh | North Carolina | United States

Join NCSU Libraries for the second Raiders of the Lost Arcade inclusive gaming event to play a curated selection of games for platforms including Steam, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Explore different ways that video games can illustrate diverse narratives, aspirations, and life experiences.  Play some of the newest games in the collection, including Papo & Yo, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, and Never Alone (Kisima Inŋitchuŋa).  Each of these games includes social justice or queer perspectives in their storylines, while offering a compelling and immersive gameplay experience. The event will draw on the narratives of these games to talk about diverse representation, including resisting character tropes and stereotypes about the gaming community.

Participants will be invited to rotate through gaming stations and to explore how NCSU Libraries’ resources can support leisure gaming, video game design, and promote critical discourse for members of the gaming community.  Gamers of all interests and skill levels are encouraged to join in the fun!
