Computer history: The Stasi played along
« on: November 22, 2018, 01:52:44 PM »
Maybe worth a read (especially as they translated it into English too) - an article about "Video games in East Germany".

https://www.zeit.de/digital/games/2018-11/computer-games-gdr-stasi-surveillance-gamer-crowd

There you can read about interesting stuff:
Quote
Paubel was allowed to spend a total of 25,000 East German marks on the equipment, paying 6,500 East German marks for each C64.

or that they (Stasi) translated game titles into German - so "Strip Poker" became "Entkleidungspoker" and "Samantha Fox" became "Samantha Fuchs" :)
