Hide and Seek is a festival of social games and playful experiences, running in London from the 27th to the 29th of June 2008. It will encompass everything from fine artists making location-based work to huge flashmob games within the public spaces of the Southbank Centre.
The festival celebrates the creative and social aspects of gaming, and invites artists from all disciplines to experiment with game design as a creative tool. This year sees projects from Blast Theory, Gideon Reeling, Momus, Jane McGonigal, and Coney, as well as parties, seminars, and a bunch of low-tech, high-fun games from the Sandpit.
The focal point of the festival is the Ballroom at the Royal Festival Hall, where players can sign up for the big events, hire out devices to try GPS gaming, play Sandpit games, and interact with a variety of weird and playful installations.
You can start signing up to play games when registration opens on June the 4th.
