DAVE HODRIEN

SPACE INVADER: A HISTORY OF UFO VIDEO GAMING



Since the birth of video gaming in the 1970s UFOs & aliens have played an integral role. Believe it or not, some of the most influential games of all time have featured flying saucers and extra-terrestrial beings, and right up to present day aspects of the UFO subject are regularly incorporated into video games.

In this new and fun-filled lecture, BUFOG's Chairman Dave Hodrien will take you on a journey through the decades, highlighting some of the most well known UFO-themed games. The talk will be filled to the brim with video clips, facts and amusing stories, and will also feature an exclusive interview with a Virtual Reality games developer.

Dave is an avid computer and console gamer and has put a lot of thought and effort into this brand new talk. So whether you are into video gaming yourself, come on down and prepare to get your game on!
