""Supercade" is a pixelated explosion of digi-pop iconography that burns your retina like the Day-Glo screen of your favorite arcade game. Van Burnham has the gamer chops and sociocultural smarts to deliver an unforgettable insider tour of the most important cultural form of the twenty-first Century."--Eric Zimmerman, President, gameLabReseña del editor:
From "Pong" to "Pac-Man", "Asteroids" to "Zaxxon" - more than 50 million people around the world have come of age within the electronic flux of videogames, their subconscious forever etched with images projected from arcade and home videogame systems. From the first 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 and the myriad systems of Magnavox, Atari, Coleco, and Mattel that followed; through the rise of the Golden Age of videogames and forward into the imagination of millions, "Supercade" illustrates and documents the history, legacy, and visual language of the videogame phenomenon. "Supercade" pays tribute to the technology, games, and visionaries of one of the most influential periods in the history of computer science-one that profoundly shaped the modern technological landscape and helped change the way people view entertainment.
