An update to a talk Dennis gave at LibrePlanet 2019 and BLU Januay 2019

Games are part of our culture, like books and movies. While we have 
access to some older games via emulators, we are failing to save our 
free software history.

Many developers try to develop a game, and then the game reaches a 
satisfactory state or the developer just moves on. Finding these games 
can be hard. Eventually libraries or languages change, and the game no 
longer runs.

This talk will discuss restoring games for future players to enjoy.

Dennis Payne is a senior software engineer at Skillsoft. He has worked 
on the commercial game Devil's Whiskey. He maintains several open source 
games like Bt Builder and Ostrich Riders. He contributes to packaging in 
the Fedora distribution.
