The Games Of 2000AD-A Retrospective.
« on: 01 November, 2016, 12:30:00 pm »
I know there are several gamers on this site and recently I pitched an idea to the rather great Retro Gamer Magazine about doing an article on all the computer and video games that were based on 2000AD properties, particularly with the comic's 40th anniversary looming large.

If anyone is interest, would they care to access the retro gamer forum and voice it.

Many thanks.   :)

Great idea, and I used buy issues, a lot of the earlier ones, of that magazine. That would be fun to read.

Here you go - might make a good place to start - not very up to date, but sadly not as out of date as I would have liked by now!!  http://www.2000ad.org/?zone=news&page=features&choice=retrogames

That's cool Leigh S!

I tentatively secured an interview with Jason Kingsley to discuss Rebellion and its plans for the future, but I'm guessing if it happens, Retro Gamer will use an in-house writer.

Well, I believe there's at least one regular contributor the magazine on the board. Perhaps he can give you an idea of how likely it is to get picked up.

Don't forget, Jason and I discussed this on the Thrill-Cast a while back http://2000adonline.com/post/332
