The very early Computer Game History

How the games have become the first digital mass product

Andreas Lange will show the very early computer games before they became a commercial product. If you ever want to know, what was really the first game this session will be the right one for you.

Andreas Lange will present the hidden history of early computer games - a story that is only now beginning to be told. While mainstream history usually starts with the space shooter Computer Space, which was programmed at M.I.T. in 1962, the rich games history began much earlier. It is surprising to discover just how strong the contemporary aspects of commerce, science and entertainment were way back then. Want to know what the first game was really like? This is the session for you.
