Join us for a series of events looking at how the Play It Again project is conserving Australia's videogame history.

The Play It Again project documents, preserves and exhibits digital cultural heritage by recovering the history of Australian made videogames of the 1990s; preserving significant local digital game artefacts currently at risk; and investigating how these can be exhibited as playable software using the newest emulation techniques.
