Galactic Games & Political Poets

Trust us - you won't fall apart if you turn around towards the past every now and then.

Guess the historical figure

Who am I?

At an early age I became fascinated with poetry (which I often wrote in green ink), publishing my first work at age 13 in a local Chilean newspaper. Although I was exiled from my homeland for my communist beliefs, I eventually returned and won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971.

Blast from the past


Before computer games and video games became a major part of popular culture, Spacewar! was a programmers dream. The 1962-released space combat game set the stage for games like Asteroids to find commercial viability.

Long hair was quite a popular style up until World War 1. We can only imagine the amount of shampoo necessary to navigate such a mane.

We'll be back tomorrow. See you then :-)
