Babycastles & The Game Innovation Lab at NYU-Poly present a lecture series spotlighting developers and game designers with insights on games and technology. The series is hosted by Andy Nealen.

Zach Gage is a game designer, programmer, educator, and conceptual artist from New York City.

His work often explores the power of systems, both those created by social interaction in digital spaces, and those that can be created for others, through the framing of games.

An Eyebeam Alumni, he has exhibited internationally at venues like the Venice Biennale, the New York MoMA, FutureEverything in Manchester, and the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw.

His work has been featured in several online and printed publications, including The New York Times Magazine, EDGE Magazine,, Neural Magazine, New York Magazine, and Das Spiel und seine Grenzen (Springer Press).
