In the beginning we all played Family
A downloadable zine
A zine about what playing videogames in Argentina was like for me during the '90s and early '00s made for Lost Histories Jam.
I had very little time this week, so I rushed the thing just now, and it's 16 pages worth of text. I haven't proof read it, so if you find a typo, let me know. I hope you enjoy it!

Thank you for sharing your story. It was touching.
omg i love this so much! it's so interesting to hear about all this. it weirdly woke up these memories of like... growing up with videogames at a time when the internet was still a mysterious place. it feels like there was this vast collective consciousness of rumours and hacks and misunderstandings of videogames that permeated our brains at the time but is foreign to children growing up now.
I'm really glad you liked it! I'm also surprised of the good memories it resurfaced for so many people <3
thanks for sharing this : ) a nice insight into a history I don't know much about. I wish that RPG Maker game you mention at the end existed xD - nilson
Thank you for reading =)
I think I can live with that game not being a thing.
I think the greatest achievement in my life was winning a Travian server, being one of the watchers of the Wonder and all.
Also, am I the only one who called it "el" Family?
Thanks for the memories
