Terrible Old Games With Ashens

We all know that the phenomenon of bad video games didn’t begin and end with E.T back in the 1980s and that for every great game there are always several awful games that balance things out in the gaming Universe. Joined by celebrity YouTuber and author of ‘Terrible Old Games You’ve Probably Never Heard Of’ Stuart Ashen we’re putting on an exhibition of some of those forgotten stinkers. That’s right! We’re dedicating an entire exhibition to the games that wasted our time, effort and hard earned pocket money as kids and the games that we never played because they scored so low in gaming magazines that..well why would we?

So come along and re-live the agony of playing some of those terrible old games that you threw in the bin or returned to WH Smiths as a kid. Stuart will be hanging out at the museum for most of the day if you’d like to meet him or to get anything signed.

Retro Video Game Night Section

Written by Aidy.

The more astute of you may have already noticed that I've added a couple of extra sections to the website. Retro Video Game Night and Retro Road Trip. The first of which contains info on all the previous Retro Video Game Nights that I organise along with the likes of Ian Guebert at the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge. So if you want to check out some photos from previous events or find out what tournaments we've done and who won then check it out. I've also added all the links to the upcoming nights.

I'll explain Retro Road Trip a bit later on :-)

Sugar Water

Written by Aidy.

Our song Sugar Water seems to have increased in popularity quite a bit recently, possibly due to its prominent placement in From Bedrooms to Billions. A few people have asked me what it's about and so here's a YouTube video to explain just that. Enjoy!

Hey Hey 16k

Merry Christmas everyone! Here's cheeky cover of MJ Hibbett's legendary song Hey Hey 16. It was recorded right here at the British IBM HQ. Hope you like it and a massive thanks to MJ Hibbett for giving us his seal of approval.

It's available as a free download from the shareware section.
