So, were you around 50 years ago?
If you were, you're a legend of the Video Game industry itself. A pure veteran.
If you were not around, that does not matter. You would have heard of Pong, it's influence on the video game industry and more. You must have played it!
With this classic being 50 years old this year, we had to find a way to bring this Atari classic to the journey.
Did you know that this table tennis style game was developed within a training exercise? Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell based the game's concept on an electronic ping-pong game included in the Magnavox!
Magnavox later sued Atari for patent infringement! Yes it happened back then also.
Pong was the first commercially successful video game, and it helped to establish the video game industry so it has to be here #KeepingTheGameAlive!
Sometimes, we need to collaborate with others in the industry to enable great moments like this to be shared.
In this instance we would like to thank the team at Difuzed for their support with bringing this part of the story to Seven Squared.
Remember the classic game in the video below.
Let's continue wearing and sharing the greatest retrogaming memories and what they mean to our mental health.
Supporting the work of video games mental health charity Safe In Our World along the way and together #KeepingTheGameAlive.
