Barry Leitch - Interview

March 16, 2019

Strong language warning! Gamasutra/Jesus Fabre had the number at around 250 but we've heard elsewhere that the legendary Barry Leitch has done over 400 (let that sink in) game soundtracks. He kindly gave up some of his free time to have this fascinating chat with our Adrian. We're not worthy!!!

The Commodore Amiga - Why is it so special?

March 2, 2019

We're back to chat this week and a topic that's a bit overdue. Adrian and Dylan's meandering chats have proven so popular we've let them waffle on about the Commodore Amiga, vital in both of their gaming upbringings. Memories aplenty plus lots of facts about the hallowed machine and in particular how much modern PC architecture owes to it...

Bandersnatch and Choose Your Own Adventure Chat

February 2, 2019

Black Mirror's Bandersnatch has taken the retro gaming community by storm but to say it's divided opinion amongst critics is an understatement. We discuss Stefan's story with spoilers galore; the inspiration for the episode (Choose Your Own Adventure books); and the importance of being able to choose your own destiny in video games. We also discuss Adrian's chat with Choose Your Own Adventure creator Edward Packard (which you can read in full here) which may or may not have led to Netflix being sued for improper use of the IP. Oops!

Lost Games - Warcraft Adventures (PC)

January 12, 2019

To release a game, or to not release a game? That is the question. Well, certainly for Blizzard back in the mid-nineties. Their foray into the adventure genre didn't exactly go to plan. The idea, to expand more on the Warcraft universe, was a good one. The game's formulation was not. Adrian is here to tell Rob and Dylan all about this fascinating story that transcended the globe. What do you mean Russia and Korea can't work together???

Check out our follow-up Q&A with Warcraft Adventures' consultant Steve Meretzky here.
