International Video Game Hall of Fame and Museum announced in Ottumwa, IA; Walter Day announces retirement


If you are into competitive gaming then you have likely heard about Twin Galaxies, an organization that deals with officially recording high scores or substantial achievements in video games across the spectrum. Led for 30 years by Walter Day, they have become the place to go to when you want high score results noticed. Now the city where Twin Galaxies was founded, Ottumwa, IA, is looking to widen it’s mark in the video game world by announcing the creation of the International Video Game Hall of Fame and Museum. There will be a four day event in August where they will induct about 30-40 people into that hall. They are expecting thousands of people to attend the event on Aug. 5th-8th, which will also be supported by Twin Galaxy sponsored competitions.

On another Twin Galaxies note, the aforementioned Walter Day has announced his retirement from TG as he seeks to spend more efforts on his music career. Twin Galaxies will continue on as it has developed a strong organization to back it so no worries about that.
