Last year, the organizers of the Toronto Comics Arts Festival (TCAF) began carving out a space for video games with the inaugural Comics vs. Games display.

Looking for a TIFF activity that doesn’t involve a two-hour rush line? Try checking out the TIFF Nexus Mini-Arcade! The exhibit runs for the duration of the festival and infuses the proceedings with a bit of local gaming flavour with help from a slew of prominent developers. All of the games are free to play and ask only that you open your mind to something new.
