Did you spend every single spare moment during your childhood mashing buttons at Timezone? Have you been living out your boozy adult dreams — and your nostalgia — at Brisbane's arcade bars? Whichever of the above applies, or even if video game arcades have only been a minor part of your life so far, you haven't experienced anything like Eephus & Sudo's Funderdome — an immersive installation that comes complete with interactive games and friendly monsters.

Part of this year's Brisbane Festival, but running a little longer — from Friday, September 2–Saturday, October 1 — this exhibition turns a love of gaming into an all-ages-appropriate entertainment arena at Metro Arts. You'll wander, you'll play, you'll hang out with flesh-and-blood humans and digital critters, and you'll stare longingly at the prize wall.

Eephus & Sudo's Funderdome hails from Tara Pattenden and marks her first solo show in Brisbane — and merging the DIY with the industrial is also a big focus.

Join the fun from Tuesday–Saturday, with hours varying per week. Or, you can check out the window gallery exhibition at all times.
