Celebrating gaming and its culture
Comfortably installed in your living room, you enjoy your deserved moments of relaxation to play, but also watch, read, listen, exhibit, share and celebrate video games in all its facets. There are a thousand and one ways to enjoy gaming and its culture.
Gaming is now infusing all areas of entertainment. Its aesthetics, its atmosphere, the sensations it provides, the worlds it creates, the stories it tells, touch us and mark us. Its symbols, its icons and its legends never cease to amuse us, surprise us and mark our imagination.
In more than 40 years of history, video games have become a major cultural practice which has built a common heritage recognized, celebrated and appreciated by all generations.
Neo retro gaming remasters your memories
Neo-retro gaming allows you to revisit your memory of video games in a new way: more anchored in the present, more accessible, more convenient, more pleasant, more fluid, more user-friendly. A bit like an old game that benefits from a remastered version: you can play it again, in a new setting, and with greater comfort.
Neo-retro diverges from retrogaming, which consists of playing and manipulating vintage devices and games, carefully preserved for years or acquired second hand. But pure and simple retrogaming is becoming inaccessible to enthusiasts, due to the wear and tear of the machines and games, the difficulty of finding them, and the need to equip oneself expensively.
Neo-retro inspires creators who offer a new way of looking at the gaming of yesteryear. Thanks to a new generation of innovative devices that draw on playful heritage to offer a design and an experience that touches our hearts, we can finally rediscover forgotten sensations while enjoying modern comfort.
DOCK & PLAY takes this path to celebrate this culture which is part of each of us, by offering a selection of game consoles, connected devices, creations and initiatives designed in a neo-retro spirit.
An inexhaustible source of inspiration
Our first interactions with a controller date back to Nintendo's NES, one fine day in 1987. Suffice to say that we literally grew up with this incredibly creative medium and have never stopped following this environment which never ceases to fascinate.
We have previously covered this industry as a journalist for various media outlets, magazines and websites. A period rich in enriching encounters to learn about the very closed behind the scenes of video games.
This proximity to creators as much as to players allows us to approach DOCK & PLAY in an original way, both as an extension of these editorial experiences, and as an online store dedicated to selecting and publicizing articles. innovative and high quality. Our audience is sensitive to the aesthetics of video games, their preservation, the emotions they provide, their transmission and their connection with other leisure activities. He is also fully aware of present and future technologies, favors comfort and serenity, appreciates beautiful objects, design and decoration.
We want your experience on DOCK & PLAY to match the consideration you have for video games. A universe which is not comparable to any other, which leaves its mark on you, and which we always return to with the joy of the first days.
