A Journal of Game Histories

ROMchip: A Journal of Game Histories is a platform designed for the advancement of critical historical studies of games. Launched in 2019, ROMchip supports any discipline of work enlivening the history of games in local and global contexts, and embraces diversity in how game history is studied, documented, collected, preserved, and practiced. ROMchip is where the history of games is taken seriously.
