Retro games : A study about how the retro trend has affected digital games (English)
Abstract [sv]

I det här arbetet undersöker vi hur retrotrenden påverkat digitala spel. Vi undersöker hur retro blivit en erkänd stil och varför den har blivit det. Vi undersöker dess koppling med nostalgi, hur nostalgi fungerar och varför man kan tänkas vilja använda sig av det när man ska utveckla ett digitalt spel. Retro är inte ett fenomen som är medie exklusivt till digitala spel, vi undersöker hur retro verkar i andra medier och hur medierna blandar retroelement med varandra. Det är inte ovanligt att samtida digitala spel influeras av retrospel eller rent av utvecklas i syfte att bli ett nyproducerat retrospel, detta är något som vi gestaltar i vår produktion av ett digitalt spel. Vi redogör i detta arbete hur vi gått tillväga när vi skapat ett spel som blandar gammalt och nytt. In this research thesis we examine how the retro trend has affected digital games. We investigate how retro has become a recognized style and why it has become so. We examine it's relationship with nostalgia, how nostalgia works and why you might want to use it when developing a digital game. Retro is not a phenomenon exclusive to digital games, we examine how retro appears in other media and how the media is mixing retro elements with each other. It is not uncommon for contemporary digital games too be influenced by retro games or to be developed as all newly produced retro games, this is something that we portray in our production of a digital game. In this paper we also explain how we proceeded when we created our digital game that mixes old with new.
