(West Plains) – A Super Nintendo Entertainment System and over a dozen game cartridges have been donated to the Garnett Library at Missouri State University-West Plains by Silicon Forge Studios, an independent game development company in West Plains, for use by students in the computer graphics and programming (CGP) department, as well as faculty and staff.

Jacob Poulette, CGP instructor and owner of Silicon Forge Studios, said the equipment can be used by CGP students to study earlier video games, how they were created and what techniques were utilized to make compelling game play.

“Games are changing so rapidly that we are at risk of losing most of our earlier works due to incompatibility and changing technology and hardware,” Poulette said. “In no other art form has there been such a quick turnover in techniques and medium. We risk the loss of a lot of our earlier heritage if we do not try and preserve these earlier works.”
