As PAX Prime once again descends upon the city of Seattle, LTD. Art Gallery has put together an amazing sequel to the extremely popular PRESS START art show, celebrating the modern era of VIDEO GAMES. 

This time around, they have over 30 industry artists who have created a unique collection of mash-up art mixing classic and modern games. Together with a selection of artwork inspired by the modern era of gaming. What would it be like if Link teamed up with the Scythian from Sword & Sorcery? How would Ms. Pac-man handle the world of Uncharted? Could Earthworm Jim team up with the Spartans and take on the galaxy? This collection of artists have a chance to really geek out and explore their love of the characters and worlds of classic and modern video games to create truly original artwork.
