A Fan-Financed Game With a Retro Feel

Perhaps because video games are often, and wrongly, viewed solely as technology, they are thought by many to be perpetually improving. And sure, the past few decades have brought changes. Visuals have shifted from ragged, chunky blocks to three-dimensional computer animation. Sounds have gone from either nonexistent — as in the text adventure games of the 1970s and ’80s — or blips and beeps to fully recorded voice performances and orchestral scores that sometimes rival the best productions for film and television.

The story is too old to be commented.
