Re: Retro gaming merchandise history

I'm curious now to see which had the first bit of merchandise. I've found this - https://web.archive.org/web/20110122151 ... 74,00.html - which very much backs up the Pac-Man claim to it.

Ah - reckon Space Invaders was the first then?

Retro gaming merchandise history

I've been looking at the Yolkfolk website and in particular the page on Dizzy merchandise: http://www.yolkfolk.com/site/page.php?id=28

Is this the first ever example of commercial gaming merchandise? I can't think of anything earlier.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 144

In the questions to David Darling bit, Hiro asked a question about the C16 and the answer is about the Spectrum? I'm guessing Gremlins but do you have Davids actual answer to Hiros question? Gremlins, for sure. Here you go: Codemasters was one of the few companies that supported the Commodore 16, h...

Ron was there at the start of Atari and Apple so he has an insight into how both began from a "third party" perspective.
