Now open at Yarra Ranges Regional Museum, Code Breakers: Women in Games is the first major exhibition to celebrate the achievements of women working in the games industry.Did you know that while women comprise of less than 10% of the industry, they have played an integral role in shaping gaming! An ACMI touring exhibition, Code Breakers: Women in Games transforms Yarra Ranges Regional Museum into an immersive and interactive game zone.
Visitors are invited to play an array of video games from indie to commercial hits and new releases, all created by Australian and New Zealand women working in different capacities - as directors, programmers, developers, digital artists, writers, producers and designers.You can crush bullies in Ninja Pizza Girl, run with animals in Armello or race suped-up cars in Need for Speed: No Limits! From platformers, RPGs and digital board games to graphical adventures and puzzlers, there's something for everyone, at every skill level.Curated in collaboration with an advisory committee consisting of key industry figures Kate Inabinet, Helen Stuckey and Leena van Deventer, Code Breakers aims to shatter stereotypes and ponder important questions: What does a more inclusive games industry look like? How do we encourage this diversity? How might video games contribute to social change?The exhibition is also complemented with a program of events including Quiet Sessions , Savvy Seniors: Have a go at games! and a Code Breakers: Game Stories School Holiday Workshop .
