In our new episode we are covering the Game Preservation Society. It is a non-profit organization actively preserving Japanese retro games from the 70’s and 80’s as cultural assets.
The members are describing their project as follows:
"We see games as an important asset and work to preserve it for future generations. Our members, although having various fields of expertise, overcome differences and share our knowledge to work towards the same goal. The preservation of video games carries many difficulties: scattering, neglect, obsolescence, vast amounts of data to handle... all making it an impossible task to take on as an individual. We strive to pass on to the world the knowledge that we gather. We need more people to help us, regardless of who you are. In return, we promise to do whatever it takes to preserve this important culture."
