Episode 99- From Bedrooms To Billions Revisited


Welcome to episode 99 of the UK’s No.1 Retro Gaming Podcast.

This week Paul Davies and Dean Swain get back our roots and have a big old retro gaming chat about anything and everything. This includes what to expect in our bumper 100th episode, the recent EGX event at Earl’s Court, their favourite retro multi-player games, gaming shop stories and why Dean can’t hack joystick wagglers!

We grab the chance to sit down again with movie makers Anthony and Nicola Caulfield following the successful release of their movie ‘From Bedrooms to Billions’ an ode the wonderful back story of the UK gaming industry.

Finally we meet up with Spanish game Dev Nachobeard at EGX to talk about his current games which have a retro heritage and also about the retro gaming scene back in his homeland.
