Jason Scott's Upcoming Documentary on Arcade Gaming of Yesteryear

Jason-Scotts-Upcoming-Documentary-on-Arcade-Gaming-of-YesteryearHaving previously sculpted fantastic documentaries on our much loved technology from years gone by, Jason Scott is back with some further ideas to preserve our past. Of the three ideas he is fundraising for, Arcade hopes to take us back to those timeless days which we allowed countless machines to gobble our change.

One of the previous documentaries put together by Jason Scott (of Textfiles.com) was the incredibly informative feature on Text Adventure video games known as Get Lamp. With this long lost genre of gaming focusing entirely on the player's imagination (due to the limitation of early systems), these games are usually highly regarded by the older generation of gamers.

Jason Scott's fundraiser for Arcade also hopes to raise enough funds for two other projects; Tape "a meditation on the medium of tape, its rapid falling out of favor, and the nature of recording our lives and loss" and The 6502 "a documentary about the MOS 6502 chip and the art of assembly language programming."

For further information on these upcoming documentaries or how to donate to the cause, head over to the Kickstarter project fundraiser page.
