“You can’t really know where you are going until you know where you have been.” - Maya Angelou
History shapes society. George Washington’s crossing of the Delaware in 1776 helped change the entire landscape of North America. D-Day during WW2 was the awakening of a new major world power. The Apollo moon landings were largely responsible for the ambitions of an entire generation.
Gamers also have a very similar shared cultural history that is slipping through our fingertips on a daily basis. The Murder of Lord British in 1997, where the players of Ultima Online murdered the creator of the game during a public event, made people rethink contemporary game design of that era. The Corrupted Blood incident in World of Warcraft in 2005 was the very first online pandemic that drastically changed the way the community interacted with each other over a weeks period of time. The Bloodbath of B-R5RB in Eve Online was so important that people have published physical books on the event.
More than 42% of Americans are spending three or more hours a week playing online games. This time is not only having an impact on modern society but it is also a new chapter in our shared human history. Our gaming history.
Clanet.io aims to drive deeper understanding of a rich cultural gaming heritage that is disappearing on a daily basis by creating tools that enable gamers to document their own gaming legacy.
Don’t let your gaming legacy be forgotten!
