Announcing The Gang Beasts Takeover!

From July 22nd – August 31st, the Gang Beasts are taking over…

Gang Beasts take over the National Videogame Museum this Summer!

From 22nd July to the 31st August, the NVM will be open every day, with a special exhibit about Sheffield’s best wobbly brawler – Gang Beasts!

We’ve partnered up with local developers Boneloaf to give our visitors an insight into how they made the worldwide smash-hit game.

Our curators have had full access to the Sheffield offices where Gang Beasts was created, and have found a selection of materials that showcase the stories behind the game. This includes a boxing ring, which serves as an iconic symbol of the playful melee of the Gang Beasts game.

Alongside this, you and your family will be able to bash and wallop each other on one of our dedicated Gang Beasts play stations!

“We’re excited to show some examples of the many experiments, iterations, and mistakes we made with the development and promotion of Gang Beasts to the NVM’s audiences, especially to those that want to make their own games.”

If you’ve been to the NVM before you will likely have enjoyed playing (and brawling) on Gang Beasts during your visit. This summer we’ve teamed up with the Sheffield-based developers Boneloaf, to bring you to discover never-before-seen stories behind its development and release.
