One of the biggest problems facing video games as an artistic medium is one of preservation. Thanks to HD remasters, digital distribution and the Internet Archive that's becoming less of an issue. But we still need to do more to keep a record and constant catalog of gaming's past moments. That's the idea behind the awkwardly named "Intellivision Gen2 Video Games for PC & Mac" on Kickstarter. As you might imagine, it's modernized versions of Intellivision titles. Astrosmash, Nightstalker and Shark! Shark! will get the new pixel art, expanded levels and scope should the project reach its $100,000 goal.

If you want in, $15 will get you all three games and bumping up to $25 gets you the games and a year-long digital subscription to Retro Video Game Magazine. Should everything go according to plan, the team (comprised of former Intellivision folks) hopes to give Utopia, Sea Battle and B-17 Bomber the same treatment as the first trio. Surely at least a few readers have a soft spot for Mattel's game console of yore, yeah?
