Episode 79 – Curtains, Commodore and Cannon Fodder


MrSid returns for episode 79 of the UK’s No.1 Retro Gaming Podcast.

This week we have an interview with legendary graphic artist Stoo Cambridge. Stoo started his career designing games on the Commodore 64 before moving onto the Amiga, Mega Drive, Jaguar and other systems. It was whilst at Sensible Software that Stoo did his most famous work for games such as Sensible Soccer, Mega Lo Mania, Sensible Golf and of course Cannon Fodder. During this interview, Stoo talks opening and extensively about his career in a really interesting way that was fascinating to hear first hand.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Stoo for sparing me his free time to do the interview.
