Curator:

Super Mario Bros, Tetris, Contra… If these names ring a bell, then feel encouraged to come to this nostalgic meeting dedicated to the early video games. If they do not, feel encouraged even more!

Learn about a new trend among gamers: returning to the past, which may be also a journey to the future of video games, as more and more of new titles are inspired by the early games. Both new and retro games will be discussed by Piotr Bieńkowski (the former head of the iconic magazine The World of Computer Games) and Konrad Baśkiewicz (the founder of Museum of Consoles and Video Games in Bydgoszcz), and the meeting will be hosted by Paweł Schreiber (Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz).
