Freitag, 27. Oktober – GiC Public Lecture #7 “Archiving Swiss Video Games – Stakes and Challenges”
28. October 2023
In unserem siebten Vortrag, am Freitag, 27. Oktober, berichtet Magalie Vetter von der Organisation "Swiss Video Game Archivisits", was die Archivierung von digitalen Spielen beinhaltet.
Video games are currently at great risk of loss and obsolescence. We’ve witnessed the complete erasure of entire game catalogs in an instant. However, the preservation and full archiving of digital media presents significant challenges. Legal regulations further complicate these efforts.
Video games are a vital aspect of our cultural practices today and will offer valuable insights for understanding societal trends in the future. They also serve as invaluable resources for future creators. It’s crucial that we take action now to safeguard this essential heritage.
