People often think of video games as something childish that can hardly be associated with exquisite living — let alone being an eagerly coveted subject of the serious collectors, they can’t even stir up the interest of those from the cultural scene. However, thanks to the revival of retro tech, the items that were once so close to obsolescence, such as vinyl records, cassette tapes, old Apple computers, and iPods, are now back on the market; and riding on old tech’s new wave, video games have also made a stunning comeback. Over the past few years, they have brought together numerous new and old players, forming various types of gaming communities and niche interest groups, and what’s more, they managed to catch the attention of collectors, which subsequently led to the revival of retro gaming. Analogue from Seattle, US is among one of the big names in the retro video game industry that produces game consoles and third-party accessories.
Running at a relatively small scale in the retro sphere, Analogue is a pioneer in reimagining retro gaming into aesthetic wonder and has garnered rave reviews from major media outlets such as The Guardian, Forbes, and WIRED. The Analogue Pocket, a sleek modern handheld gaming console, is a tribute to Nintendo‘s Game Boy with modern day tech and refreshing minimalist visuals that come in the color of black or white. Unlike its forefathers, the Analogue Pocket has a high definition display and some enticing new technical specifications and features that greatly enhance the console performance and gaming experience; from inside and out, the Analogue Pocket has a contemporary design that allows nostalgic gamers to relive their childhood gaming memories.
