A collaboration between TCDC and British Council, the “DigiPlay: Thai–UK Digital Festival” exhibition focuses on the Thai – UK video games and animation industry. Born in the 1940’s, the industry has grown to be one of the driving forces of the UK economy today and a key creative industry for Thailand’s future. DigiPlay tracks the technological evolution of digital games and playing devices from the age before the console to today’s cutting edge computer game. Come and play some of the most popular games from the UK’s top class developers as well as small yet talented studios, such as Lego Harry Potter, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Little Big Planet 2 and Chimes, and gain an insight into the creative process of game development.
