Episode 82 – Ocean Software 1984-1998

83artWelcome to episode 82 of The Retro Asylum, the UK’s No1 Retro Gaming Podcast. In this episode your hosts are MrSid aka Sam and PressPlayOnTape aka Steve.

The guys take a look at one of the most popular game developers/publishers ever; Ocean Software. Starting in 1984 where it all began, and then working their way through the years right up until 1998.

Each year, the guys will talk about which games came out, what they were like and what other landmark occasions happened.

Throughout the timeline will also be contributions from our listeners who each talk about their favourite Ocean games. A massive thanks to The Drisk, Swainy, Paul Monaghan, Andy and Peter from New Zealand for their MP3’s! We hope you enjoy this podcast and as ever, if you have any feedback, do let us know.

Big thanks to all our sponsors and please leave us an iTunes review if you love the show!

The track played before the start of the main podcast is a remix of Ocean Loader 3, done by Peter Clarke himself a few years ago.

Steves choice of music at the end of the show was ‘How Soon is Now’ by the Smiths. Also, a massive thanks to Phil Hockaday (@last1up) for possible the best podcast cover we have ever seen. Well done Phil! 🙂
