About this item

It was a time when technology was king, status was determined by your high score, andvideogames were blitzing the world... From Pong to Pac-Man, Asteroids to Zaxxon--more than fiftymillion people around the world have come of age within the electronic flux of videogames, theirsubconscious forever etched with images projected from arcade and home videogame systems. From thefirst interactive blips of electronic light at Brookhaven National Labs and the creation of Spacewar! at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; to the invention of the TV Game Project andthe myriad systems of Magnavox, Atari, Coleco, and Mattel that followed; through the rise of theGolden Age of videogames and forward into the imagination of millions, Supercade is the first bookto illustrate and document the history, legacy, and visual language of the videogamephenomenon.

Exuberantly written and illustrated in full color, Supercade pays tribute to thetechnology, games, and visionaries of one of the most influential periods in the history of computerscience--one that profoundly shaped the modern technological landscape and helped change the waypeople view entertainment. Supercade includes contributions from such commentators and particpants as Ralph Baer, Julian Dibbell, Keith Feinstein, Joe Fielder, Lauren Fielder, Justin Hall, LeonardHerman, Steven Johnson, Steven Kent, Nick Montfort, Bob Parks, Carl Steadman, and TomVanderbilt.
