28.09 WE 17.00 @Katowice City of Gardens: 5 gallery

Video games in art galleries no longer shock – and they definitely don’t surprise our festival-goers. However, the games themselves certainly will. This year, Ars Independent’s guests will be able to play more than a dozen selected titles included in the sections such as the Horror House, Game in Poland (the most interesting new indie games from our neighborhood) and the virtual reality titles. And there of course is the main dish: the Black Horse of Video Games competition. It consists of six titles from which our audience will choose the winner over the course of the festival. There will be refreshments, there will be guests and it will be fun. This year we play thanks to the support of: PCStore, VR Enter, Need IT, Carbon Studio and Artifex Mundi.
