One of the biggest problems facing video games as an artistic medium is one of preservation. Thanks to HD remasters, digital distribution and the Internet Archive that’s becoming less of an issue. But we still need to do more to keep a record and constant catalog of gaming’s past moments. That’s the idea behind the awkwardly named “Intellivision Gen2 Video Games for PC & Mac” on Kickstarter.
