A downloadable zine

Save Point is a zine about video game history, written by a real, live historian. The goal is to take the research and put in a form that is easier and less cost-prohibitive to access and more fun to read. 

The theme of this issue is "video game history through objects," covering research practices, some of the challenges of researching video games, and then demonstrating the types of questions and concepts that drive projects. It builds on a talk I gave at MAGfest (which you can watch here).

Save Point is full of hand-drawn art and is approximately 24 full-color pages long with a saddle-stitched cover. With the funding needed, it will be professionally printed; a PDF version is also available. Topics covered in this first issue include:

  • Why does history of video games matter?
  • How do you do history?
  • Home Pong
  • Death Race
  • Centipede
  • Tetris
  • Feelies
  • Tamagotchi
  • Distribution and merchandising
