Now Play This


Annual games festival Now Play This returns to Somerset House in April for its biggest edition ever, with even more exciting hands-on gameplay for all ages to enjoy.

Part of the city-wide London Games Festival, Now Play This brings the latest independent and experimental game design from around the world, across an extended nine-day season.

From solo games to multiplayer collaborative experiences, Now Play This shows how games can be used as a medium to explore unexpected subjects unflinchingly, from looking for love to living with a disability.

With works from a host of multidisciplinary artists and creators, from authors and poets to contemporary artists and gaming collectives, Now Play This allows visitors to interact with a diverse range of outdoor and indoor gaming installations, many of which premiere for the first time at the festival.

Players will also have the chance to try their own hand at game-making with interactive, participatory installations, as well as live zine-making.

Tickets from £6.50. Book here.
