I had the pleasure of speaking in depth about my career in the games industry with the awesome Dean from the Mean Machine Dean Podcast recorded recently with my lockdown hair and wannabe Gandalf (feeling) beard! Oh and my trusty ZZap! 64 mug courtesy of my ol’mate at Fusion RetroBook Chris Wilkins.
Before I start this post I’d like to send out a big thanks to Quang from Asobitech for putting Danny (BBC Level 23) in touch with me without whom I would not have been a guest on the show – thanks man I appreciate it! (Quang is awesome by the way check out Mao Mao Castle which I had the pleasure of playing at EGX 2019 – if you love Space Harrier you will adore this! – Check it out >>>here<<< ).
So where was I…Ah yes...BBC Level 23 – I’ve given a fair number of interviews over the years; some in print, some on the web, some as audio and a few on video, so when I was approached by BBC 3 Counties radio to feature as a guest on their Level 23 gaming show I couldn’t say no could I.
I was honoured when Chris (Wilkins) invited me to join my old Sensible mate Jon Hare to give a talk about all things Sensible Software at the recent Retro Revival 2019 event in Walsall, UK.
The thing is I’ve never actually been to a retro gaming event before so I had no idea what it was going to be like. I’d seen a few photos on line from similar events but up until this point I hadn’t attend one. Crazy right?
