Did you miss us? We are back with a story about finding a Discs of Tron arcade machine by the side of a road. What a find. We follow that by wondering if a new retro restoration TV show could be putting entertainment over the truth. Then finally it seems that there is a new effort to preserve games in Australia.
All this and our Community Question Of The Week plus a quick catch up with your hosts.
We are very grateful to our sponsor, Pixel Addict magazine. Head on over to https://www.pixel.addict.media for the full run down on the latest issue. Highlights include: a look at the Thomson T07, working out why Myst was the game of the 1990s and a look at and interview with the people who bought Zool out of retirement.
