Fantastic Failure

Museum Centre Vapriikki, Tampere

  • 7.10.2023–5.1.2025

On October 7th, the story of the Tampere-born N-Gage gaming console opens at Vapriikki Gallery. The exhibition offers a nostalgic yet thought-provoking glimpse into the transformative era of the Finnish gaming and technology industry.


In 2003, Nokia was the world's largest mobile phone manufacturer. In its heyday, the company, driven by its success, wanted a share of the lucrative gaming industry and decided to challenge gaming giant Nintendo with its own gaming console that combined both a gaming device and a phone. Nokia's gaming console was developed almost entirely in Tampere, and it was named N-Gage.
