Retro Games Showcase in the Mabo Library

Check out the latest exhibit at the Mabo Libary; Retro Games Showcase was created by JCU  IT students Brady Peschka, Desmond McConnell, and Robert Warnes, it features items from their personal collections.

About the exhibit

Home video game consoles have evolved dramatically over the last forty years since the release of the Magnavox Odyssey. This exhibit showcases the rapid evolution of not only computer technology, but consumer expectations and the integration of technology into daily life.

For some, this exhibit will be a nostalgic walk down memory lane, for others it will highlight just how far computer technology has evolved from playing Pong in all its 2 dimensional, 8 bit glory, to 2017’s visually stunning Horizon Zero Dawn. 

The exhibit will run until Sunday 19th November, so come see it before it's gone!

Exhibits change throughout the year at both the Cairns campus library and the Mabo library in Townsville, so there's always something fresh to see.
