Play It Again: Preserving Australia's videogames from the 1990s
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.
About the Conference
These events run in parallel to the Born Digital Cultural Heritage 2022 Conference. This multi-disciplinary, international event explores the historical and cultural value of born-digital artefacts and strategies for preserving them.
