An inside look at the art of the world's biggest entertainment and creative industry.
Videogames might have begun as an obsession of visionary technocrats, but today almost everyone has played a game or two. Gaming has a huge and diverse fan base, and videogames have spread through arcades, personal computers, consoles, and now, mobile devices.
Game Masters showcases the evolution of games across 40 years, from the legendary Space Invaders and Pac-Man, through to modern favourites like Rock Band and Real Racing. It celebrates the amazing designers and developers who brought these games to life, and reveals the painstaking design processes behind their creation.
