GMR Leftovers: The Home Computer Era

For each issue of the Dutch games magazine called “GMR”:, I write a four-page special on the history of games. In every episode I try to find the real story of an era – for the October issue, I tackled the age of home computers. The article is mainly about the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, MSX, Amiga and Atari ST.

Unfortunately, a couple of research tidbits–intended as screenshots plus captions–didn’t make it into the magazine because of space constraints. So I decided to translate and publish them here.
