Homebrewing and video games?

Find out the connection this Thursday and take part in a conversation on gaming culture.

May 24, 4 to 5 PM

W.W. Hagerty Library, room L-33 (Lower Level)

Kevin Impellizeri, doctoral candidate in history at the University of Delaware, will discuss his research on a DIY community of programmers who built games for the Bally Astrocade console in the 1980s. From 1978-1986, they published a newsletter before moving to a Usenet group. Visit their online treasure trove for Astrocade enthusiasts at Bally Alley.
Kevin has been tracing the group's motivations, development, and conversations about ownership production. The case study is a part of Kevin's larger research project on the history of video games and American culture. 

A Q&A session and discussion will follow the presentation.
