Contemporary Korean history for the Commodore 64 generation

If you enjoy a bit of history but are more of a watcher than a reader then read on.

South Korean game company Studio Shelter have put together a demo for a (fictional) game titled ‘Democracy Demo’. If you were part of the ‘8-bit generation’ and grew up with the likes of ‘Street Fighter’ and the original ‘Mario’ you will swoon with nostalgic delight at this video which humorously (and quite accurately) depicts the modern history of South Korea from the end of Japanese occupation (1945) to the present day. Knowing a thing or two about South Korea helps (depicting former president Lee Myung-bak as a rat will please many) but it will entertain nonetheless.
