For us, games are more than just games. Its culture! It is something created by great people with creative ideas. By building a large archive of physical games, we want to preserve and tribute the games culture for a long period of time.
My name is David Boström and I´m the CEO of the Embracer Games Archive. I have been given the honourable task to lead the work of building up this unique Games Archive. Imagine a place where all physical video games, consoles and accessories are gathered at the same place. And think about how much that could mean for games’ culture and enabling video games research. This journey has just been started and we are at an early stage. But already now, we have a large collection to take care of at the Embracer Games Archive’s premises in Karlstad, Sweden. A team of experts has been recruited and will start building the foundation for the archive. At Embracer Games Archive, we believe that games carry a heritage worth celebrating and safeguarding for the future. Our goal is clear – We want to archive and save as much of the video games industry as possible.
In early 2023, the Embracer Games Archive enters a new phase when the framework for the database is complete. Then the big work can begin with cataloging the now over 60,000 objects that are in this unique archive for video games. So we are happy to announce that we are looking for new employees for the Embracer Games Archive. If you want to work with us here at the archive and be with us on this unique journey, we hope you take the opportunity and apply. See the links below for more information about the services.
Embracer Games Archive’s focus is buying large complete unique collections (both hardware and software) of formats we are missing. If you have a collection that you want to sell, please contact our retro gaming advisor Thomas Sunhede at email@example.com and include photos, lists of the objects, as well as your valuation.
We currently don’t have an official wanted-list, but in the future, we will post individual games we’re on the look for or specific platforms for which we are looking to complete.
