Re: The Ted Dabney Experience podcast

The latest episode of our podcast features the always eloquent and charming Andy Walker talking about being a Brit making arcade games in an American dominated world... some great tales! And some fascinating little insights on working with the Stamper Brothers of Rare/Ultimate fame https://www.tedda...

Re: Issue 213

I've just read the Reg Stevens interview, wow what a story, he was unassuming about it all. Great job tracking him down. Thanks for those kind words - all the credit for tracking him down goes to Frank Gasking. My hero. And yeah, though Reg was only in the business for a few years, the stuff he did...

Questions for Betty 'Quantum' Ryan Tylko

Hello all - hope you're staying safe and well. My next interviewee is a name you probably haven't heard of but I think her story will be really interesting. Betty worked at GCC, the company that produced the Missile Command hack Super Missile Attack and then Ms. Pac-Man... if you have watched High S...

Re: The Ted Dabney Experience podcast

Thanks Paul, surprised we’ve not seen this before now. Interviews with these pioneers are always good, so I’ve subscribed in iTunes. Is there any benefit in viewing the YouTube shows instead, e.g. footage of games discussed or pics of people mentioned, or is it just the audio? Ah thanks for your ki...

Questions for Reg 'Skramble!' Stevens

Hello all - my next interviewee is kind of special for me... and maybe for others who had a Vic-20. The first ever game I played on the Vic (my first computer) was a great (if rock hard) clone of Scramble written by Reg. I know I'm not the only one to have fond memories of it and a big thanks to Fra...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 210

I'm surprised there's no thread for this issue yet. I had to create one just to say how great the Tony Pomfret interview is, he's a character, just don't mention Wigan :lol: Ah glad it made you smile Ely. Tony is a good lad. Despite his apparent concern about being associated with Wigan. It's alway...

Re: Questions for Dan Cheap MDF rubbish

Ha! The forum alters any mention of that room in your house which you cook in and have discos in during lockdown to cheap MDF rubbish! Hey mods, can you call him by his true name? Though Dan Cheap MDF Rubbish could be his rap name. Ta.

Questions for Dan Kitche.n

Hello all - I'm speaking to Dan Kitche.n this Friday and of all the people I've interviewed over the last 16 years, I think he may have had a hand in most games. The list below isn't even complete! He did some on his own, some with his brother Garry and some he led the team or was the producer, so h...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 209

That Chris Cannon interview is superb. Also enjoyed the 3d Monster Maze, BBC Minority report and Rebel Assult articles. Thanks for the kind words about the Chris Cannon piece (you too, Merman, Rossi46 and psj3809) - he was fun to talk to and I think that came across on the page. Next month I have s...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 208 - Back to the 80s

I finally got my physical copy and smiled a lot at the big 80s feature - it's just the sort of wide-ranging, imaginative article the mag does so well. Nice one Daz, Nick and Drew for making it happen. But I have to say I was slightly disappointed in one respect - the opening text promised 'iconoclas...

Re: Questions for Tony 'Daley Thompson' Pomfret

Thanks for taking the time to post these questions. Much appreciated. Spoke to Tony for almost 2 hours on Thursday - he is very frank, very funny and very sweary. Hope they keep it in as that's how he talks. Next time my interviewee is an American with a career that starts on the Atari VCS and takes...
