This paper is an edited version of the International Game Developers Association’s Game Preservation Special Interest Group’s recent white paper. The specific threats to preserving digital games are outlined, as is the importance of games as cultural objects. The current strategies for preservation across a range of stakeholders are presented followed by an argument for why preservation matters to industry and what industry can contribute. Finally, the unique potential relationship between academia and industry in this matter is explored, and a call for partnership projects and strategic dialogue is made
