First mentioned exclusively on Offworld in early February, art/culture organization Giant Robot has officially announced Game Over/Continue? — its games-inspired art exhibition opening in San Francisco on March 27th, the final night of the Game Developers Conference.

In addition to the lineup of illustrator and indie developer crossover games being created for the show, Giant Robot has also announced a stellar list of designers and artists doing more traditional games-inspired artwork, including:

APAK, Robert Bellm, Christopher Bettig, Bigfoot, Blinky, Sean Boyles, William Buzzell, Scott Carl, Ako Castuera, Ethan Hayes-Chute, CUPCO, Liam Devowski, Elayne Dixon, Everybody Get Up, Matt Furie, Pete Glover, Tim Gough, Jay Howell, Yellena James, Jeremyville, Heisuke “PCP” Kitazawa, Chris Kline, Matt Lock, Aaron Martinez, Bill McRight, Mike Perry, Sidney Pink, Albert Reyes, Brian Ralph, RONDO, Brian Rush, Johnny Ryan, Robert Sato, Scrappers, Caleb Sheridan, Snaggs, Jim Stoten, Kaz Strzepek, Team Macho, Joe To, Lawrence Yang

Most intriguingly, the press release has also quietly announced the formation of artxgame, a formal collaboration between Giant Robot and upstart game/art collective Attract Mode, hinting that the four games being created for this show (Hellen Jo/Derek Yu, Saelee Oh/Anna Anthropy, Souther Salazar/Petri Purho, and Deth P. Sun/Jonatan “Cactus” Soderstrom) are just the first volleys in an upcoming series.

For more information on the artists and games being developed for the show — including a sneak preview of Oh/Anthropy’s collaboration — check Offworld’s original post on the exhibition. The opening reception for Game Over/Continue? will be held from 6:30 – 10:00 on Friday, March 27 at Giant Robot’s GRSF gallery at 618 Shrader St., San Francisco CA 94117.
