The lights are on
The New York Museum of Modern Art is hosting a new exhibit, Century of the Child: Growing by Design, and it features a nod to one of Namco Bandai's most memorable games. Katamari Damacy makes an appearance in the exhibit, which is focused on the way that games, toys, and other kid-friendly things have changed over the past century.
The museum praises the game's quirky style and how it appeals to people of all ages. Katamari Damacy put players in the tiny shoes of a prince as he rolls a sticky ball around the world, attracting objects until the accumulated mass is large enough to pick up entire planets. The game was released in 2004 on the PlayStation 2. It is also quite cute.
If you're interested in the exhibit, it runs from July 29 through November 5 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

I'm happy for the Katamari team. It really is a great game and it's awesome to see it get this kind of recognition. And that sounds like a fascinating exhibit. I wish I could go see it in person.

It's about time the game gets a bit of the public recognition it deserves :)
It should, as one of the artsiest japanese games ever
Good show Katamari good show
Why only Katamari?
I live on the other side of the US, so I won't ever see this. I'm also not a big fan of art exhibits. But it sounds pretty cool.
Cool. I would love to go see that. I may have to make a New York trip.
