1983 + 1984: WHEN VIDEOGAMES ARRIVED

Marcus Vincius Garrett Chiado



 

It seems like yesterday, but ten years have passed since the publication of the first book by researcher Marcus Garrett, the work “1983: The Year of Videogames in Brazil”, whose intention was to report how the arrival of video games in the country happened – with almost seven years late!


In 2012 came the sequel, “1984: The Video Game Fever Continues”, and since then, through more research and new interviews with industry personalities, suspicions and rumors were confirmed, and new facets of our gamistic history were discovered.


Under what terms did the agreement between Warner and Polyvox take place to launch the national Atari in 1983? How did the game Come-Come – from Odyssey – get this title in Brazil? Were Nintendo's Game & Watch almost made here? Was Telejogo a “secret” project at Philco Ford? How did the pioneering game journalists, in a time without the Internet, manage to stay on top of the news? Did the Dynavision cabinet design come from a turntable? Learn it all with this new work, the second edition (revised and expanded) of the 2011 and 2012 books.
