Stichting Nationaal Videogame Museum was opened last year in Zoetermeer and received more than 20, 000 visitors. The museum has more than 200 game consoles, home computers and arcade cabinets ready to play. The goal of the foundation, however, is more than just letting visitors play a game, it wants to show the game culture and history and make the importance of gaming for education transparent.
"The collaboration with Computest is not only good for us to get more publicity for the museum. It is also very interesting to look together at what you could do with old and / or new gaming technology, "says Hasan Tasdemir, founder and director of the museum. "In the long term, we want to develop new initiatives for education programs for primary and secondary education. Computest also fits well with our museum in terms of corporate culture and mindset. I am therefore looking forward to a pleasant cooperation. "
The museum has the ambition to become a national knowledge center for games and a national video game archive. There are also plans to create a hackerspace for young and old. For this the foundation wants to collaborate as much as possible with companies from the region. The partnership with Computest is an important step in this.
"Gaming is not just about playing or winning or losing. There is often teamwork involved. This is an important element in the daily work we do for our clients, "says Kim ten Brink, Marketing Manager at Computest. "With many gaming fans among our employees and customers, we are also happy to bring the museum closer to the target group by organizing events at the location and providing two arcade cabinets in our office. We also want to help Zoetermeer's company further develop the foundation. "
