Raiders of the Lost Arcade
Please join NCSU Libraries for the second Raiders of the Lost Arcade inclusive gaming event! We will be playing a curated selection of games for platforms including Steam, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch, which explore different ways that video games can illustrate diverse narratives, aspirations, and life experiences. Come play some of the newest games in our collection, including Papo & Yo, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, and Never Alone (Kisima Inŋitchuŋa). Each of these games includes social justice or queer perspectives in their storylines, while offering a compelling and immersive gameplay experience. We will draw on the narratives of these games to talk about diverse representation, including resisting character tropes and stereotypes about the gaming community.
Participants will be invited to rotate through our gaming stations, and to explore how NCSU Libraries' resources can support leisure gaming, video game design, and promote critical discourse for members of the gaming community. Gamers of all interests and skill levels are encouraged to join in the fun!
