GARD - The GAmes Research Database



Information about GARD

GARD is intended to be primarily a resource for game researchers. However, many of the games are extremely aesthetic or artistic and some of the historical information fascinating - so it can be enjoyed by anyone.

It is publicly available on a "not for profit basis" and is subject to copyright and reproduction rights restrictions. Permission is required for the use of the material for commercial purposes, or for multiple image reproduction. For single images we ask for an acknowledgement and where an image is published on a website, we ask for a hyperlink back to our website.

Note: there is restricted access to certain pictures and details to protect copyright and/or privacy. For example we have images of designs for games lodged at the Designs Registry. Application can be made for researchers and contributors to have access to these, or to specific portions.
