The most famous arcade video game in the world sculpted on vinyl records!
No need to introduce you to Space Invaders, the most popular arcade video game and probably the most artistically recuperated. We all have played, at least once in our live to Space Invaders. Born in the 80s, this game, like many of my generation rocked my adolescence.
For those who have spent the last 20 years in a basement, here’s a reminder of what Space Invaders is. It’s a video game released in an arcade version in 1978. Developed by the Japanese company Taito, it is considered to be the precursor of the “Shoot Them Up” video games style. Its designer / programmer Tomohiro Nishikado has been largely inspired by several games, books and movies of the time like Breakout, War of the Worlds by HG Wells and George Lucas‘ Star Wars to create the game. The aim is simple, is to defeat waves of aliens with a horizontally moving spaceship. It is in the 80s and 90s, a classic video games just like Pac-Man.
