Computer graphics of a bygone era
Werner Randelshofer, a visual computing student at ETH Zurich, has taken it upon himself to archive digital artwork from early computer systems that are no longer with us, such as the Commodore Amiga, IBM clones, the Atari ST and many more.
The site does a great job of archiving systems by type, and artist. Beside the abundance of game stills and animations, there are some classic demos on display, converted for modern viewing, including an old favourite of mine, Automated Light by James M. Robinson. Randelshofer took the time to contact the original artists, who in some cases provide additional commentary on their work.
The site makes it clear that even with the limited computing power of the late 80s and early 90s, there was no lack of imagination.
