A lot of efforts by a lot of entities all over the world are taking an interest in video game history preservation. Not to be left out I was just reading an article on Paste Magazine’s website by Kyle McKenney that talks about some of the Smithsonian’s efforts on this endeavor. This includes interviews with Richard Garriott and other game developers.
The initial two-year phase of the archive includes up to 20 in-depth oral-history interviews with inventors and designers active in the 1960s and 1970s. The first completed interview will feature award-winning video- and computer-game designer Richard Garriott (pictured below).
Great article and a short read, so go check it out. Tell them the Caverns, Dungeons, and Beyond sent you!
