Immerse yourself in a retro gaming experience spanning several decades and many platforms–all drawn from The Game History Teaching Collection in The Game Studio at Champlain College.

The show will confront issues surrounding preservation and access to digital game experiences of the past, while sharing key artifacts, titles, and experiences from games.
