Video Game History Museum Collection Drive Underway

A video game museum project is in need of help.

By , Contributor
Video game history needs to be saved, and if it's going to be done, there's no one better than the guys behind Digital Press. The site is a veritable gold mine of reference material, catalogs, lists, but behind it all are people who care about where this industry has been.

So, Digital Press frontmen and Classic Gaming Expo founders Joe Santulli, Sean Kelly, and John Hardie have begun a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of raising $30,000 to fund the project's beginnings. Along with the crew are two of the men credited with founding video games, Pong creator Ralph Baer and Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, both acting as the board of advisers.

Those who pledge toward the cause can earn goodies that include t-shirts, tickets should the museum see daylight, and the invaluable Digital Press guides. For those truly generous, a lifetime membership to the museum is in the cards.

The museum promises to be all-inclusive, with playable exhibits and space to cover all aspects of the industry's storied history, a first of its kind. As of today, people have pledged just under $7,000 of the $30,000 needed to see this museum take off, and you have around 50 days to pledge a minimum of $5.

Since publishers don't seem to care enough to preserve their past; somebody has to. It's a cause worth giving a look.
