We are very happy to be joined by Amiga Bill this week as we discuss the end of Steam for Windows 7, the lost art of home made game maps and remembering that before Duke Nukem discovered a 3rd dimension he was running around in 2D platforming adventures.

Do you remember Flashback? Would you say it is a similar game to Dragon's Lair? Dave does but what about the other hosts? Amiga Bill walks us through his modified Amiga A1200.

All this and your answers to our Community Question Of The Week.

We are sponsored by Pixel Addict, a magazine about all things pixel based with a generous amount of retro computers, games, toys and movie coverage too. If you are into homebrew games for classic systems then you will find updates on current projects along with new game announcements and developer interviews. Visit
