NCM Library

As part of Nexon Computer Museum’s preservation project, NCM Library archives all game-related experiences with vast collection of retro home video consoles (such as Magnavox Odyssey), game software and magazines. Also to inherit interactive gaming experiences to future generations – in which we consider as most important elements in video game preservation, the library offers a wide range of multiply acquired gaming devices open for visitors to play.

Space Invaders
the beginning of shooting games
스페이스 인베이더

Developed by Taito in 1978, Space Invaders is one of the earliest and most successful shooting games in history. It is also the first game to use the game play mode where the enemy characters attack as they descend vertically towards the player, which is currently a mode of game play that is common for this genre. The game had huge commercial success; Space Invaders was installed in over 100,000 arcade machines in Japan alone and almost 300,000 across the world within a year after its debut. The game was later ported to home video game console Atari 2600, and almost quadrupled the console’s sales.

Virtual reality(VR) is a technology that creates a computer-simulated environment. It is mostly demonstrated through HMD(Head Mounted Display) device, which can provide realistic virtual environment with 360 degree virtual images that change according to wearer’s head movement. Unlike Augmented Reality(AR) that overlays computer graphics and information onto real space, Virtual Reality provides a sense of immersion as if you directly go into a new space. Visitors can experience HTC Vive Pro and Oculus Rift here.
