Build your own world in VR:
Thursday, you and your kids are invited to come and play with the creative VR tool Stampede.
Stampede is a brand new toolset for creating art together in VR (Virtual Reality), for all ages. These mini-workshops will run throughout the whole exhibition day, and allow up to 3 visitors to enter Virtual Reality simultaneously and create art together.
Participants will be guided by veteran VR artist and animator Joe Daniels, who’ll work with them hands-on to generate ideas, show what’s possible, and help them realize their dreams.
Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes and no signup is required. Visitors are encouraged to just queue, and meanwhile, get inspired by witnessing what is currently being made while they wait for their turn.
Shark Gaming is bringing the VR-bus:
You’ll have the opportunity to go completely VR-crazy, when Shark Gaming parks their epic VR-bus outside Viborg Game Expo.

The retro-lounge is back:
Sit down and relax with old arcade classics from back in the day. NESBOZZ is setting up his retro-lounge, where you can experience classic games from the ’80s and ’90s (for all ages, Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
Creative exploration of technology for kids and teens:
Local coding pirates-clubs in the region are opening up their monthly club night for everyone on CREATE-day Thursday the 26th of September, so that everyone visiting the VGE can see and learn what it takes to be a coding pirate. If you want to play with technology yourself, visit the pirates all day on RECREATE-day Sunday the 29th of September from 2 pm to 4 pm.
Coding Pirates is an organization working to develop kids and teens between 7 and 17 technological courage by focusing on technological imagination, ingenuity, and craftsmanship.
Trash-art and plastic medals:
The theme for Viborg Animation Festival is “Human Impact”. The environmental crisis is the ‘final boss’ of our time and that’s why Viborg Game Expo this year is putting sustainability on the agenda, with a playful approach to climate activism. VGE has teamed up with GivingBack to make trash-art and medals out of recycled plastic.
