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.
What is the purpose of the archive?
Our mission is to have a copy of each physical game ever released. We know it is a huge task as games are still released physically with hopefully no end in sight. It is a lofty goal that we think is important and a worthy pursuit for the preservation of our shared games history.
Is it just games from Europe or the whole world?
Our focus to begin with is Nordic editions with English text or other European editions with English text, but our long-term goal is to also cover North American and Japanese editions.
Is it video games for all formats/consoles/computer?
Basically yes, but some are of course more prioritized than others.
Will you be able to do research in the archive?
We are happy to collaborate with initiatives to preserve and document games. In the future, we will be able to be helpful. But at present the archive is not easily accessible or cataloged. We will announce when the archive gradually becomes more accessible.
Who owns the games in the archive?
How many games do you have in the archive?
The archive contains over 50,000 different games, consoles and accessories.
Where is the archive based?
Can I visit the archive?
In its current form no. But it is our long-term ambition to make parts of the collection publicly available.
I have a collection of video games that I want to sell/donate, who should I contact?
Please contact our retro gaming advisor at email@example.com. Preferably with photos and lists of the objects, as well as your own valuation.
Are there any pictures or movies from the archive?
The archive is still under construction. In the long run, we want to make it available in different ways in the future.
Is this an eternity project?
We see games as something important to preserve and as long as new physical games are released, the archive will grow.
