About

Haiku Adventure: The Craft of Games explores the intersection between traditional Japanese woodblock prints and videogames - two different mediums separated by centuries and yet linked by a common sensibility.

Small Island Games present the development of their 'indie' title Haiku Adventure, juxtaposing its creative process with its artistic influence: the ukiyo-e prints of Edo-era Japan. The display follows on from the Gallery's 2017 exhibition, Sheer Pleasure: Frank Brangwyn and the Art of Japan, which was formative to the game's conception.

This exhibition showcases original Japanese prints alongside interactive game displays and an overview of the development process, allowing visitors to experience a modern adaptation of an ancient craft.
