The VC&G Christmas Collection (2015 Edition)

December 8th, 2015 by Benj Edwards

Vintage Computing and Gaming Christmas Xmas Megapost

It’s that time of year again: the Yuletide. Over the past few years, I’ve been posting an annual collection of all the Christmas-related tech material I’ve written (both for this site and for others) into one place for easy reading. Below, you’ll find list of off-site Christmas slideshows, other features, and of course, plenty of Retro Scans of the Week.

I have a soft spot for Christmas, having been raised with the tradition, so this list is for me as much as it is for everyone else. After going through these things again, it’s amazing to see how much Christmas stuff I’ve posted over the years. I hope you enjoy it.

    Boink, I was very convinced I was the only person looking at that particular piece of ANSI art this holiday season. (I’m working on visuals for 50 minutes of retro computer Christmas music.) I believe it’s elsewhere attributed to Jean Ludwig.

    Roman,

    (Not sure who Boink is, but I’ll reply anyway.) I have a fairly large collection of Christmas ANSI graphics, and it’s neat that someone else other than me is still interested in them too. For the past decade I’ve been collecting retro computer/video game Christmas art, games, and demos. It’s been fun using them in the offsite work I’ve been doing over the years.

    Sorry, “Boink” was just an awkward opening — an ill-considered goofy exclamation of astonishment in the wee hours.

    I’ll drop you a line when we get our images and sounds coordinated — I’ve mined over 250 pieces of textmode holiday artwork from various sources, ANSI and ASCII, public domain and underground, static and ANSImated! (Had I realised you had already done similar work — because of course you have — I would have come to you first 8)

    And here you go, the full “Christmas ANSI art music video visuals” project I was discussing:

    If I’m really on top of my game, I’ll zip up the accumulated assets utilized in the video and send them your way.
