PREHISTORY OF THE VIDEO GAME

Damien Djaouti

 

What is the first video game? For some, it is PONG (1972). For others, from Spacewar! (1962). But in truth, there are many video games created long before them. For example, the game of the sheep and the fence, which dates from 1951. Or the first French computer game, which dates back to 1960. Through this book illustrated with numerous visual archives, the author, Damien Djaouti, offers you a journey to the beginning of computing, to discover the pioneers who created the ancestors of our current video games. Because at the time, it was not just necessary to invent a program, but also the machine that went with it! Discover the epic of precursors with multiple talents and crazy ideas, without whom the "video game" would not exist today.
