The Video Game Preservation Museum is trying to resolve the crisis of video game history being lost. Each year, large amounts of e-waste is created and thousands of items are discarded, never to be seen again. In some cases even video games are lost forever. Developers can spend years creating music, artwork, graphics and code, only for it to go unreleased due to various circumstances. VGPM aims to reuse and preserve these discarded assets. We save items which would normally end up as e-waste and thrown in landfills.
In turn this lessens the environmental impact that these items would have. We archive items that would other wise be considered scrap by large corporations and developers. Through this, we can share their story, discover any history they contain, and even uncover never before seen video games and hardware. By supporting VGPM you are helping us save items that would otherwise be lost to time. You're helping us rediscover forgotten history, and showing corporations and developers that their work matters.
