What we’re trying to do

Thursday, February 21st, 2013 by macpast

There are tremendous online communities bent on preserving retro gaming and computer culture. Look no further than Macintosh Garden and Mariusnet for retro Mac culture, just to name a few. Legendary games like Doom, Marathon, Myth, and Duke3d live on with modern ports. We hope MacPast becomes a bridge between those solid in the community and those who have no idea what goodies nostalgia has to offer. Classic Mac OS and the PowerPC should not be forgotten. Through celebration of modern revivals of classic software/hardware along with showcasing the classics as intended we hope to help preserve the past of Mac. Specifics?
We’re talking video podcasts and streaming video events of Mac classic gaming and software demonstrations and competitions. Picture 4 player LANs of doom 2 running on color iMacs and powermac 8100s. We look to feature interviews of those blazing trials in the way we interact with old macs. We hope to host local classic LAN parties here on the east coast. We look to become a hub for sharing stores and media. Turned an iMac into a fishbowl? Ported old software? Modded an old PowerMac? We want to know about it. Reaching out to those unaware of the joys of old macs is key as well. We hope to become a social, multimedia and interactive center for the past of Mac. Hope you can join us.
