The Play It Again project is researching the history and preservation needs of 1980s Australian and New Zealand digital games.
Digital games make up a significant but little known chapter in the history of the moving image in Australia and New Zealand. This site aims to exhibit some of the significant local games of the 1980s era, and collect documentation in order to remember early games through popular memory.
It features a curated exhibition of information about fifty 1980s Australian and New Zealand Games, and the Creators and Companies behind them. Help us to build a database of information about 1980s computer games: make comments on the games and companies, and contribute your memories and artefacts.
Between September 2013 and December 2014, we ran a Blog with changing monthly themes and guest bloggers. The regular entries have now ceased, and this is an archived version of the site.
The Popular Memory Archive has been researched and compiled by Angela Ndalianis, Helen Stuckey, and Melanie Swalwell. The database was designed by Denise de Vries.
