Expect the next level of PLAY AUSTRIA in spring 2019!

Austrian Game History Area

This interactive exhibition on the history of digital games from Austria is the point of departure for the varied presentations at the trade fair. It makes the historical context experienceable and allows the public to see which developments in hardware and software have played out over the last twenty-five years. It thus furthers the desire to leap into the present and future of games made in Austria.
