New Display Cases

Last week, we managed to add five display cases to the (previously empty-looking) wall just outside the archive room, which are large enough to hold some of the larger video game posters in our collection.

They will also give us the chance to showcase some of the neat video game ephemera that we don't often get to show off, including a t-shirt for Dragon's Lair, signed by its creators, Don Bluth and Gary Goldman.

(Thanks to Britain for donating the shirt, and to Shannon for coming up with the great blurb.)

Here are a few titles that are now available to play on the Amigas:
