ALL THE GAMES!
Vancouver-based Liquid Media has revealed it has bought the rights to 65 classic videogames. The company’s chairman, Joshua Jackson (who you might know from Fringe and Dawson’s Creek) is excited about the acquisition, saying: “So many people, myself included, are returning to the classics.
The nostalgia brought on by this resurgence in retro games connects us to our childhoods – and creates incredible demand.”
What’s interesting about the acquisition is that many of the games in question (which include NFL games, Bubble Bobble, Wetrix, and Street Fighter: The Movie) are licensed, which means Liquid Media will likely need to make more deals to rerelease the games. We’re also unsure if anyone is still interested in playing Antz Racing in 2018. We could be wrong, though.
