Join forces and explore the creative world of gaming as you enjoy multi-player arcade games made by small developers from around the world.

CARDBOARD ARCADE is a suite of travelling arcade machines made out of cardboard. Inside is a computer, a monitor and a game.

Unstable King’s goal is to put free multi-player arcade machines in public places around the UK to encourage new friendships through gaming. They also want to encourage people to see computer games as an artistic and creative medium.

The arcade started as a side project to a comedy/circus show that was heavily inspired by gaming. The project’s creator is Michael Bell who operates underneath the umbrella of his arts company Unstable King.

STREET VIDEO GAME CHALLENGE – An improvised live gaming experience where the audience come together to complete simple challenges with hilarious results. A pop up spectator sport where the passion of fandom and the want to win join together in an electrifying synthwave inspired showdown. A smash hit at places such as the V&A and Befest and designed for gamers and non-gamers of any age.
