NYPLarcade Teen: Local Multiplayer Games


NYPLarcade Teen is an opportunity for teens to play, watch, and discuss independent, experimental, and thought-provoking games in a library setting. Think of it as a book club, but for video games. Our second series at Muhlenberg Library focuses on the rise of local multiplayer games.

As social networks, mobile devices, and always-online consoles have popularized gaming virtually with others, there has recently been a movement towards designing games which rely on face-to-face interaction.

This series will highlight recent, independent titles which embody this growing trend, from the irreverent, party atmosphere of B.U.T.T.O.N. (inspired by Bernie De Koven and the New Games Movement) to the Esports minimalism of Nidhogg.

All events listed take place in the community room of the Muhlenberg Library and begin at 3:30 p.m. For ages 12 to 18.
