The retro gaming community is thriving, and part of the reason is that the ever-expanding YouTube scene is shining a light on some childhood classics. So we're bringing along some of our favourites to PLAY Expo Manchester!
We will be running a fun interactive YouTuber Panel on our streaming stage where we will be joined by The Top Hat Gaming Man, Kim Justice, Slopes Game Room, and Octav1us Kitten! The guys are inviting you all to bring your weirdest and wackiest retro possessions and they will review, critique and ponder over them live on stage! The more bizarre the better!
One of our new for 2019 features will be SLOPE'S GAME SHOW hosted by Dan Ibbertson aka Slopes Games Room! The visual based game show will be based on everything retro and featuring popular YouTube personalities from around the world on the big screen with plenty of prizes to be won! Schedules will be released soon!
