A guy preserving the new history of PC games, one Linux port at a time

Video game preservation efforts have traditionally focused on older retro games or those dependent on live services. However, as time goes on, a new era of games, specifically indies from the late aughts to mid-twenty-teens, also require maintenance to remain accessible. Ethan Lee, the individual responsible for maintaining older games, emphasizes the importance of continuous maintenance rather than solely remastering games. Lee’s work ensures that about 70 well-known indie games from that era remain playable on current systems. He highlights the misconception that PC games will automatically work on future versions of Windows and explains the challenges of maintaining games across different system layers.
