Philip Long, director of V&A Dundee, has said:

We are delighted to be opening our next major exhibition, Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt, this weekend. This is a very exciting show for anyone with an interest in art, creativity and design, as well as makers and players of videogames. As you walk through this exhibition you get to see how a game is designed, from the earliest sketch right through to the online communities and independent designers that are reshaping the future of gaming.

As part of the major exhibition, the design museum has commissioned a brand new videogame that will soon be available to play on V&A Dundee’s website.

‘Plaything’, created by Will Anderson and Niall Tessier-Lavigne, allows users to hand-craft a character in their personal browser, who grows and develops with their creator.
