Help our crowdfunding

Dear friends,

I am writing on behalf of the Game Preservation Society, dedicated to the important work of preserving our nation’s classic video games. We are holding a fundraiser to purchase a Fujitsu fi-7600 archival scanner, which will be invaluable in our mission.
This specialized high-end scanner will allow us to create digital copies of aging media such as game magazines, manuals and other documents. The fi-7600 is unmatched in its ability to digitize damaged, faded, or degraded materials while still maintaining precision and detail. For the fragile documents of past decades, this technology is essential.
The classics we strive to preserve defined generations of culture and advancement for Japan. They represent our history as a pioneer in interactive entertainment and technology. It is our solemn duty to maintain accessibility to these landmark works before they are lost forever.
We cannot accomplish this imperative work without support. I humbly request that you consider donating to our fundraiser for this urgently needed scanning equipment. Together, we can ensure that the cherished games which have shaped our society are preserved for future generations. Please join us in protecting our nation’s interactive legacy.

Thank you for always supporting our association.

We have published the latest issue of our Japanese newsletter, GPS News vol.21, so we would like to inform you.
In July 2023, we were able to successfully finish the 2022 fiscal year activities. This newsletter contains the 2022 fiscal year activity report, financial report, and the 2023 fiscal year activity plan.

In fiscal year 2022, in addition to continuing the Archive Project funded by the Agency for Cultural Affairs, our preservation research completed the 8-inch drive adapter for Pauline preservation device, and our awareness activities included the release of the documentary “Geimu” Part 2.

In addition, this issue features how the materials donated to our association are being stored.

Also, we discovered some incorrect figures in the prior fiscal year’s financial report in GPS News vol.18, so we have replaced it with a corrected version in both Japanese and English.

The newsletter is open for non-members to view as well, so if you know anyone interested or involved in game preservation, please share information about our activities.

We will continue our activities relying on your support, so thank you as always.
