Ever since I laid my eyes on the 2D adventure role-playing game Child of Light, I have been in total awe with the fantastic hand drawn watercolor graphics and perfect use of the UbiArt Engine. Child of Light tells the story of princess Aurora who is trapped in the mythical world of Lemuria....
As you can imagine, we're pretty psyched about the Retro Game Experience, which is coming up next weekend. It's getting pretty hectic with only a few days left, but Poppe Ten Dolle, part of the organisation, took some time to answer a few brief questions.
Boulevard Voltaire in Paris, France, is home to some amazing game shops. We had a chat with Franck from Square Games Shop about how it all started.
The Retro Game Fair in Deurne (The Netherlands) is just around the corner, and we thought it would be interesting to find out a bit more about this event and the organisers.
The Retro Game Experience you say? Chances are you have no clue what's going on here, so I bet you’re intrigued by what we’re talking about, so let’s fire some questions at one of the organisers of this event and find out what this is all about.
It's always interesting to talk about people's collections, especially when these collections are very impressive. We've interviewed a thorough collector of Mega Man games from Sweden with the name 'Sanna'. Let's fire some questions at her.
Have you always wondered how videogame music is produced and what drives the people behind it? If your answer is yes (or even no), you should totally read on because we did an interview with three aspiring chiptune artists!
You probably know the SupaBoy and the Retron 3, but do you know they are developed by Hyperkin? Well, because these two machines are quite interesting and do offer you a lot of options you didn't have back in the day, we thought it was time to ask them a few questions.
At Magix Buttons we like to find the retro stuff you do not know much about and we're guessing that this is one of those things that you should know more about. The world of chip tune music is not a very big one, but definitely one that deserves a little attention here.
During the Paris Games Week I decided to visit the Voltaire area in the 11th arrondissement in Paris, where some video game shops can be found. I was interested in one shop in particular because it seemed to be popular according to the internet.
