Indie Games developers tribute posters by Hearts and Minds Media<br />The Retro Remakes scene really inspired some fantastic titles in public domain programming (2000-2010) which sadly faded from view and community activity when steam started to take over for commercialisation of the software scene. Return learn gaming has backed up the picks of the list to ensure they are not lost and contacted the authors where possible to offer thanks and compliments. Where possible to highlight their impact in this ebook. Hope you enjoy and any broken links please find the retro remakes backup links on returnlearn<br />J H, 2017, Return learn gaming<br />Acknowledgements<br />To the arcades, retailers, community centres and communities which offered a new insight into the potential for gaming to change and develop all ages in their learning; thank you. It was a learning experience from start to finish and being an avid gamer since the early 80’s I was glad to witness new generations playing the same games.<br />For the developers which continue to inspire new methods of engagement and learning for all ages and keep the dream alive.<br />‘The obvious objective of video games is to entertain people by surprising them with new experiences.’<br />Shigeru Miyamoto
