Description


Game On: Vintage Computer Games of the 1980s and 1990s from the Internet Archive

Interactive Workshop

Seng Tee Lee Seminar Room, Senate House Library

11:00 – 16:00

Join us for this hands-on interactive workshop to play and explore vintage computer games from the 1980s and 1990s inspired by the concepts of utopia and dystopia. ‘Sinistar’, ‘Fallout’, ‘Syndicate’, ‘Utopia: the creation of a nation’ and many other classic titles depict post-apocalyptic worlds full of action and adventure where the player is in control of the future. Many of these games have been preserved by the Internet Archive and can still be played today.

The workshop will be facilitated by Jane Winters, Professor of Digital Humanities at the School of Advanced Studies.

Feel free to drop in or join us for the whole day!
