Welcome to Raster Scroll. My name is John Harrison.

This site is the realization of a dream I’ve long nourished: to publish well-researched, informative, and thoughtful works related to Japanese video game history.

Thanks to the outstanding support of hundreds of people around the world, I have been given the opportunity to pursue this dream in depth. At the end of 2020, my book Legends of 16-Bit Game Development: A History of Treasure and the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis was successfully funded on Kickstarter.

If you want to read some of the articles and translations I’ve published related to Sega, you can also check out my site at mdshock.com.
