50 Years: The Birth of the Video Game Industry

Celebrating the first commercial video game that ignited the 90b dollar game industry.

The very first arcade game, and the very first commercially available video game product.

50 whole years ago, Computer Space was announced to industry press and distributors at the annual Music Operators of America (MOA) Expo for the first time in October of 1971. It was created by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney…

The film also made history by being the first video game to be featured in a movie. A custom cabinet unit of the early arcade game Computer Space was used in Soylent Green and is considered to be the first video game appearance in a film.

Computer Space is a brilliant landmark in game design and Arcade history. The Arcade cabinet is a work of art and an emblem of 70s Futurism + interior design. See the NFTs
