    • 12 Games of Christmas Kickstarter Project!

      2 years ago

      SixSicSixClown

      The idea for the 12 games of Christmas came about a few years ago. I was in my mid 20s and Christmas had started to lose the spark that it once had. A friend of mine bought me a retro game that I used to have as a kid. As I tore open his terribly wrapped present I had a moment of pure nostalgia when I saw it… I felt like a kid again.

      I wanted to bring that nostalgia and Christmas feeling to gamers everywhere. Whether that is in the form of a shirt that instantly makes people in public scream “wow I remember that game” to a Christmas card for your friends and family that reminds them of their favourite Christmas present as a kid.

      I have had one design as a Christmas card last year but this year I want YOUR help to soop it up to a full range. I have sourced an awesome factory that will create them but I need your help choosing which games to include in the 12 Games of Christmas card range and your backing to secure a big batch of them.

      I have included a few tiers to help you spread nostalgia this Christmas (whatever your budget) with Shirts, Sweaters, Cards and signed art prints. If you have the budget you can even commission me to create your favourite game in a Christmas sweater style!

      • Give a Christmas gift of Retro gaming! Why not buy your friends or family a retro game of nostalgia? Partner it up with a Games of Christmas card and you will have one happy friend on Christmas day :-)
      • Contact your favourite gaming websites and spread the word! It means a lot that you would go this far to help me out. All I can give is my deepest thanks and a virtual high five across the internet but I will definitely remember and help you out in the future if I can.
      • If you see anyone wearing a Retro Review design let me know! Last year I came across a few videos on YouTube with people wearing my Christmas designs. If you see any in the wild throw your Pokeball and send a picture my way on Facebook.

    • Retro Review Project

      Hi G1's!

      I have just started a new facebook page looking into oldschool games.

      The project is simple and easy for you all to get involved with. I want to know what games you remember as a kid. The ones that you have amazing memories of and the ones that shaped the gaming industry as we now know it.

      So what do you need to do to get involved?

      Well it is as easy as 1,2,3...

      Step 1: Like the facebook page http://www.facebook.com/RetroReviewGames

      Step 2: Upload a photo of a retro game you love and write a short review as the title

      Step 3: Tag RetroReview in the photo so that it is posted to our page

      Together we can build a database of oldschool games and educate the oldest and wisest of gamers on games they may not of even heard of let alone played.

      I hope to see you all on there,

      Matt
