Zero Gamer looks at games played, unplayed and unplayable, the spectator and the spectacle. Sometimes we just like to watch, and machinima, gameplay videos and spectator gaming events take the activity out of interactivity. Zero Gamer presents games that play themselves, video documents of in-game performance, game engine experiments and challenging documentaries on gameplay.
At the London Games Festival Fringe 2007, HTTP Gallery presents the Zero Gamer exhibition in the festival lounge at 01zero-one before its presentation at HTTP Gallery.
