Someone just told me about this place and I just had to sign up as it's great to see people passionate about the same thing!
If some of you here are Australian, you have a good retro gaming mate who’s an Aussie, or you know a retro gaming influencer with Aus fans then maybe you can help with this preservation attempt!
I’ve been working with others to try and digitally preserve copies of a great old late 80s early 90s Australian video game electronics magazine called MegaZone that covered PC & Amiga (with a particular focus on point & click adventures), Atari, Nintendo and a lots of SEGA stuff (it eventually became SEGA only in its final years).
At this point in time 42 of the 56 issues have been found and scanned by various collectors and myself leaving 14 issues still missing, all from the magazines earliest years. Many of the magazines found are missing their posters and some occasionally had supplement mini books that may be missing too. We’re also trying to digitize any MegaZone TV commercials out there on old VHS video cassettes as we have rescued 2 but know there are more (I remember seeing more as a kid).
I can see that someone here has even uploaded some covers to your site. Should you guys want to increase your records and even have pdfs too then feel free to take what you need from our collections as we have many more. Sadly you guys don't have any of our missing 14 though.
