Can you imagine going to the theatre to play a game in tandem with the audience on a regular basis? RENGA gave life to the concept at TIFF Nexus. Dork Shelf's Eric wonders: can theatrical gaming become the next big form of live entertainment?
John Sear and Adam Russel turn spectators into participants (and guinea pigs) at TIFF Nexus on a multiplayer ride with Renga, a game the audience plays in unison on the big screen.
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.
