Play it again: preserving Australian videogame history …

A lot of progress has been made since the initial announcement of the funding, despite some bureaucratic delays and the global pandemic.
Fifty-four Australian games have been selected spanning the 1990s These games were created on a range of media including cartridges, 5.25 inch and 3.5 inch floppies and CDs.

The platforms cover a variety of hardware from games consoles to personal computers, as well as operating systems released throughout the 1990s, Amiga, DOS, Macintosh, NES, SNES, Sega Saturn, Playstation, Gameboy, MS Windows (W95 to W98).

All the disks and cartridges have been imaged and currently different emulators are being evaluated as is the EaaS platform.
The “Popular Memory Archive” will soon be launched to present infomation about these games and people will be able to contribute their memories of the games and the period.
Regular updates will be made on Twitter @AgainPlay.
