Cast-offs from the Golden Age invites the user to adopt the position of the researcher, unearthing the local histories of videogaming in New Zealand by exploring a 3D space in which inquiries, interviews, dead ends and historical artifacts are enacted and explored. A collaboration with scholar Melanie Swalwell.

A brief demonstration of the project is presented below.
