Scottish videogame entrepreneur Chris van der Kuyl came to Perth on Thursday this week to launch an exciting new interactive exhibition at Perth Museum and Art Gallery celebrating the evolution of videogames.

The chairman of Dundee based 4J Studios, the developers of Minecraft: Console Edition, took the opportunity to play classic games on computers and consoles from the 80s to the present day.

He said: “To see the history of console gaming in one room is incredibly exciting for anyone involved in this industry – like many I grew up playing with many of the consoles featured.

“The fact that gamers of all ages will have a chance to play on these consoles is even more fun. It’s a definite summer holiday destination for all the family.”

The exhibition features a catalogue of consoles for visitors, from passionate gamers to videogame novices, and will run until September 18.

Entry to the exhibition is £3 for adults, £2 for concessions and £10 for a family ticket (two adults, two children). To find out more about the exhibition visit
