Tiny Thumbs

When you think of video games, you probably think of overweight guys sitting in their basement den as they spray blood across their TV screen. You probably think of massive guns that not even a body builder could carry and aim with effectively at the same time. The indie game movement has shown that interactive entertainment isn't just a mindless expression of repressed violence. It can also harness the power and control that video games can offer to express real thoughts, emotions and ideas in ways that no other medium can. "Tiny Thumbs" is a public exhibition of this growing game underground surrounded by a central theme. Their next exhibition at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25th at CentralTrak (800 Exposition Ave) will showcase a series of games that express LGBT issues and experiences.
