Featuring the Rare and Obscure...
The museum offering at Uplink will be through a number of walkthrough presentations.
The Ring of History was a smash hit at the LI Retro Gaming Expo last year, and at Uplink we are bringing it to you in digital form. Learn about each console generation and the consoles in it. See the ins and outs, the controllers, and the games. See gameplay and learn some things you maybe did not know, like what some common modification for the systems are.
The museum itself will be a deep dive into many of the rare and obscure items LIRetro have accumulated over the years. And yes, before you ask we will have the Sharp X68000.
Here is a video tour of the museum area from our physical 2019 event!
Here are just a few of our museum items:
Have an interesting item you’d like to loan? We want to hear from you!
If you are interested in loaning an item for the museum, please contact Brendan at PinballBrendan@gmail.com. All museum items will be locked inside a display case unless you opt to allow us to set it up for free play in the museum area. Staff will be constantly supervising the museum during the event. Your item must remain with the museum for the entire duration of the event (Saturday & Sunday). Anyone who loans an item will get comped admission for the expo! Please note that offering an item does not guarantee we will accept it – many items have already been secured and we will evaluate all items to make sure they fit the museum criteria.
We are seeking the following items:
Development Systems for any console
Prototype Software for any cartridge based console
Any rare, obscure game consoles or computers
