Premier Issue: ROMchip – a journal of game histories launches today! #Gaming #VintageComputing #Retro @ROMchip_Journal
ROMchip: A Journal of Game Histories is a platform designed for the advancement of critical historical studies of games. It 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.
Publishing works in the form of scholarly articles, transcripts of oral histories and interviews, along with short works devoted to game related artifacts at cultural institutions and beyond, ROMchip is committed to both theoretically and empirically informed historiography as well as rigorous research methods.
ROMchip is committed to embracing both academic and non-academic contributors and readers. Our creative commons license ensures authors maintain control of their work while our non-paywall means that content is available to everyone.
Funded by The Media School at Indiana University, Bloomington, issues are published bi-annually in July and December.

While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
